Police dealt with some interesting circumstances surrounding a theft recently, involving a minor and a vehicle.

The EPS received a report of a truck stolen from a local retail store's parking lot. In attending and taking the statements of witnesses and such, as well as the vehicle's information to put in the database for other centers to watch out for, the culprit was determined to be a 14 year old kid. The truck was found not too long after by the Regina Police Service.

"The young person has since been taken into custody and charged with theft of a motor vehicle under the Criminal Code. He was also on conditions stemming conditions of an undertaking from a judge out of Regina to keep the peace and and be of good behavior, so he was charged with a breach," shared Sergeant Tyler McMillan.

A few days before, the EPS was also involved in a lengthy drug investigation that ended in the execution of a search warrant on a residence in Bienfait, and the arrest of a Regina man.

"During this investigation, it was determined that the male had lied to police about his name, that was dating back to January 10th of 2018 when this male was charged with possession of marijuana. As a result of that, this male faces charges of obstructing a peace officer under the Criminal Code, failing to appear in court because he missed court in regards to those charges, and it was also determined he had conditions out of Regina, so he was charged with failing to comply with an undertaking," McMillan said.

"Stemming out of the incident on March 15th, he's been charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of marijuana over 30 grams, and possession of property obtained by crime."

The man appeared in court on Monday, and has been remanded into custody for a later date.

"Some of it came with the public's assistance, between video and witness statements and keeping their eyes open, so we appreciate the public's support. Just like any other offence, if you see criminal activity, or even suspect it in your area, call Crimestoppers or the local police," concluded McMillan.
