On December 2, 2018 at approximately 12:45 a.m., police attempted to stop a vehicle in the 400 block of Lorne Street. The vehicle stopped momentarily, but when officers exited their police vehicle to speak to the driver, the driver attempted to leave the scene via a sudden acceleration of his vehicle. While trying to evade the police officers, the suspect vehicle struck the unoccupied police vehicle.
The suspect then drove a short distance from the accident scene before vacating his vehicle. After a brief pursuit, police arrested the suspect near 9th Avenue North and Lorne Street. A search of both the suspect and the suspect vehicle led to the discovery of a large amount of cocaine, crystal meth and marijuana.
Fifty-two year-old Jean St. GERMAIN of Regina has been charged with:
- 3 x Possession of a scheduled substance for the purposes of trafficking [CDSA 5(2)];
- Resist arrest [CC 129(A)];
- Fail to stop at a scene of an accident [252(1.1) CC]; and,
- Possession of proceeds of property obtained by crime [355(B) CC].
St. GERMAIN will appear in Provincial Court for these charges on December 3, 2018 at 9:30 a.m.
