A 33 year-old male has been charged in connection with a stolen auto/dangerous driving incident in Regina on Friday May 18, 2018. A 29 year-old female was charged with public mischief in connection with the same event.
On Friday May 18, 2018, police were about to conduct a traffic initiative in the 2100 block of Fleury Street when officers observed a red Oldsmobile Alero approaching at a high rate of speed. The vehicle rapidly approached Arcola Avenue, lost control and skidded into a 180-degree turn, striking the centre median. A male and female exited the vehicle; the female appeared to be injured. Before police could approach, the male got into a nearby Ford F150 and fled the scene. The driver of the F150 had gotten out of the truck to offer assistance to the occupants of the car. The male was arrested a short time later at a residence in the 100 block of McIntyre Street North. The female occupant of the Alero declined EMS. The investigation into this event led to charges against both occupants of the Alero: the male for his driving actions and the theft of the truck and other possessions; the female for making misleading statements to police.
