Two persons: a 21 year-old female and a 23 year-old male, face firearms-related charges in connection with a high-risk vehicle stop carried out by Regina Police Service patrol members, last night, in the area of 2nd Ave and Broad Street.
At approximately 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 24, 2016, a number of police units were dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of Halifax Street for a report of a disturbance, possibly a firearm-discharge. Witnesses reported seeing a number of vehicles leave the area, including a white Malibu. The driver of this car was seen getting into the vehicle with what appeared to be a firearm. Other police units spotted a vehicle matching this description near Toronto Street and 2nd Avenue and performed a vehicle stop, called a high-risk manoeuvre because of the possibility of a firearm. Two people were arrested and a loaded, sawed-off .22 calibre rifle was found in the car. Further investigation led to charges against the two individuals.
Twenty-three year-old Michael Lee OMILON, DOB: 1992-08-31, of Wolseley, SK, and 21 year-old Dakota Jordan Michelle KOCH, DOB: 1994-10-24, of Regina, are charged with Careless Use of a Firearm [86(1) CC] and Unauthorized Possession of a Prohibited or Restricted Weapon [91(2) CC]. Both accused made their first court appearances in Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m., Monday, January 25, 2016.
