A police investigation into what was thought to be a potential firearms offence on Tuesday, September 3rd, has yielded evidence that the report, though well-meant, was unfounded.
At about 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday September 3, 2019, a caller to the Regina Police Service reported hearing what sounded like a gunshot in the 900 block of Montague Street. The same caller also described a vehicle pulling up to the address shortly before the sound. Police attended and secured the scene. Officers initially detained three adults; two of them, one male and one female, were arrested on outstanding warrants. The RPS Canine Unit was called in to assist with a search of the premises and two other adults were located: one male and one female. They, too, were found to be the subjects of outstanding warrants and arrested. There was no firearm located in the house, but among items seized was a spent firework, believed to be the source of the loud sound. Some of the other items seized from the house are believed to be stolen property. The investigation is continuing.
The Regina Police Service appreciates the willingness of Regina residents to report any suspicious activity to police.
