A 30 year-old Regina male is facing charges after an incident involving a stolen vehicle and alleged dangerous driving in the city.
On Tuesday, October 4, 2022, at about 12:12 a.m., Regina Police Service patrol members spotted a white, Lincoln town car on 3rd Avenue North that was operating with no lights on. The vehicle matched the description of a vehicle, which had been reported stolen on September 29, 2022. Officers tried to get closer to confirm the license plate, but the vehicle sped away, disobeying a stop sign and exceeding the speed limit. The officers pulled over and radioed the position of the fleeing vehicle. Another police unit spotted the same car stopped in an alley, and observed the driver fleeing on foot. A canine team and patrol officers found a suspect a short distance away and the police service dog located a sweater and the keys of the stolen vehicle nearby. After further investigation, the male was charged.
Thirty year-old Shawn Royal PARISIAN, of Regina, is charged with:
- Operate conveyance dangerous to public, s. 320.13(1) CC, and
- Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, s. 355(a) CC.
PARISIAN was released on an undertaking to appear in Provincial Court on these charges on November 17, 2022, at 9:30 a.m.
