A 41 year-old Regina male has been charged in connection with several recent incidents of shoplifting from Regina stores as well as a business Break and Enter.
On Tuesday, December 15, 2020, around 6:22 p.m., police were dispatched to a building in the 1900 block of Saskatchewan Drive in downtown Regina. Early information indicated a male entered the building, stole a wrench and then allegedly used that tool to pry several doors, breaking into a business within the building. Police were able to apprehend the suspect, inside the building, without incident. The suspect was also identified as the primary suspect in a number of recent Shoplifting/Theft incidents, which resulted in losses of merchandise valued at almost two-thousand dollars. Further investigation led to charges in connection with these shoplifting events which occurred on October 30th, November 5th, December 2nd and December 10th, all in Regina. The suspect was also charged in connection with the December 15th theft of the wrench as well as the Break and Enter.
