The Regina Police Service (RPS) have charged a man after officers tracked down a stolen truck.
The man was arrested March 24 at about 9:10 p.m. According to a release, a member of the Canine Unit was in the area of 7th Avenue and Argyle Street when he observed a vehicle that had been reported stolen earlier in the day.

RPS stated the 27-year-old Breland Emile Louison exited the vehicle and was arrested without incident.
Louison was charged with operation of a conveyance while prohibited and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000. He made his first appearance in Provincial Court Friday morning.
