UPDATE: Two people facing charges after police stop vehicle driving wrong way on Arcola
A man and a woman are now in custody and facing several charges after they were arrested in the area of Arcola Avenue and McAra Street Thursday afternoon.
Officers were trying to locate a male wanted on warrants, and believed to be a suspect in a number of recent crimes, including both property and violent crimes.
Patrol members were sent to the scene after plain clothes investigators observed the suspect male in a Kia Rio at a business in East Regina, which was reported stolen yesterday (August 8).
Police successfully deployed a spike belt in an alley around 12.20 p.m. and the suspect and passenger continued to drive around in the Al Ritchie neighbourhood, at one point proceeding westbound in the eastbound lanes of Arcola Avenue.
The stolen vehicle eventually came to a stop on McAra Street, close to Arcola Avenue.
Both suspects ran away on foot but were caught a short distance away.
A police canine unit apprehended the male suspect, who was then taken to hospital for treatment.
Twenty-four-year-old Nayo Pisim Fox, of Regina is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, possession of property obtained by crime for the stolen car, two counts of driving while disqualified and four other charges.
Twenty-two-year-old Shianna Spring Kakakaway, of Regina, is charged with possession of a concealed weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of a weapon for the purpose of committing an offence. She is also facing similar charges to Fox for the stolen vehicle.
Both of the accused made their first appearance in Regina’s provincial court on Friday afternoon.
