Saskatoon Police arrested a man with the help of members of the public after an evade Police event Thursday afternoon.
At approximately 1:30 p.m., July 27, 2017, officers were dispatched to the 500 block of Cynthia Street for reports of a stolen vehicle out of Prince Albert, through OnStar. OnStar retained an open line of communication with Police, advising officers of the route of the suspect vehicle. It was observed by Police at Millar Avenue and Circle Drive East where a traffic stop was attempted. As soon as the patrol car's emergency equipment was activated, the suspect vehicle evaded police at a high rate of speed.
The suspect driver stopped and exited the vehicle near Circle Drive, east of Warman Road. The SPS Canine Unit was deployed and tracked the suspect to an area around the 800 block of Circle Drive East. Staff members from a business in the area then notified officers that they had discovered a suspicious male in their building and had detained him.
A 34 year old male, who was unlawfully at large, was arrested without incident. Both the suspect vehicle and licence plate were found to have been stolen.
The man was charged with Possession of Stolen Property over $5000, Possession of Stolen Property under $5000, Possession of Methamphetamine, Driving while Impaired. He was also issued tickets for Misuse of a License Plate, Operating an Unregistered Vehicle and Operating a Vehicle Without a Driver’s License.
