A 31 year-old Regina male is facing numerous charges, in connection with a series of crimes occurring between January 20th and 24th. These include stolen vehicles, possession of stolen property and hit and run. The male was also the subject of outstanding warrants for Robbery, Forcible Confinement and Uttering Threats from a November 9, 2018, incident, as well as other matters.
A brief summary of these incidents is as follows: on January 20, 2019, there was a break and enter at a business in the 1800 block of East Turvey Road, where multiple vehicle keys were stolen. That led to the theft of three vehicles and a trailer. On January 24, 2019, police were able to identify a male suspect, who was seen in one of the stolen trucks from the break and enter. Later that day, this suspect is alleged to have been involved in a hit and run in the 300 block of McIntyre Street, while operating the stolen truck. That same afternoon, the same suspect is alleged to have attempted to steal a truck belonging to a transport company in the 6500 block of Rochdale. In this case, an employee saw the truck leaving and jumped in the passenger seat. The suspect jumped out of the vehicle and fled. This incident was followed by another vehicle theft: the same suspect is alleged to have stolen a van, belonging to a plumbing company, that was parked and running in the area of Lorne Place. Through investigation, the suspect was arrested on Sunday, February 3, 2019, at approximately 12:18 a.m., near Lumsden, Saskatchewan.
Thirty-one year-old Ronald Devon ZERR, of Regina, is charged with:
- Possession of Stolen Property over $5,000 [355(a) CC];
- Failure to Stop after Accident [320.16(1) CC];
- Theft of Motor Vehicle [333.1(1) CC]; and
