The Regina Police Service (RPS) has charged a 30-year-old man following a stolen vehicle and dangerous driving incident.
On Tuesday at 12:12 a.m., police say they spotted a white Lincoln Town Car on 3rd Avenue North in operation with no lights on.
“The vehicle matched the description of a vehicle, which had been reported stolen on September 29, 2022,” the RPS stated in a release. “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 RPS said 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,” said police.
The RPS charged Shawn Royal Parisian with operating a conveyance dangerous to the public and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.
Parisian was released on an undertaking to appear in provincial court on Nov. 17 at 9:30 a.m.
