An adult male is facing charges following an early morning Break and Enter on Quincy Drive.
Police were dispatched to the area shortly after 4:00 a.m. today, August 11, 2023, for a report that a suspicious male was loading, what appeared to be, various construction items into a taxi cab. When officers arrived they learned that the suspect had fled on foot after an area resident came out of their house and informed the taxi driver the items were likely stolen from a construction site next door.
Officers searched the area and recovered tools, electronics, household items and other goods stuffed into pillow cases. All were discarded on the sidewalk. A nearby construction trailer appeared to have been broken into as well.
The Canine Unit was called in and, following a short track by Police Service Dog Radik, the suspect was located and taken into custody. He was taken to hospital for treatment of minor injuries he sustained from the police dog bite. The suspect was in possession of tools, a bike, a backpack filled with various items as well as keys and identification cards belonging to someone else.
As a result of this investigation, 23 year-old Waylon PROSPER of Regina is charged with:
- 2 x Break and Enter [CC 348(1)(b)];
- Theft Under $5,000 [CC 334(b)];
- 2 x Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000 [CC 355(b)];
- Fail to Comply With Condition of an Undertaking [CC 145(4)(a)].
PROSPER will make his first appearance on these charges in Regina Provincial Court on Monday, August 14, 2023 at 9:30 a.m.
