Multiple Charges/Evade Police/Robbery - 1300 Block 8th Street East

A 27 year old man is facing a number of charges following an incident involving stolen autos, robbery, and two collisions on the weekend.

At approximately 12:30 a.m., October 14, 2017, officers attempted to stop a stolen black GMC Sierra truck. The driver refused to stop and began to evade police. Members of the Air Support Unit were able to monitor from the air. The suspect collided with another vehicle, a Nissan Frontier at the intersection of 22nd Street and 2nd Avenue before stealing the Nissan from the owner while in possession of what appeared to be a firearm. The suspect then traveled in the Nissan to the 1300 block of 8th Street East where he abandoned that vehicle and attempted to steal another. He was trying to flee the scene in a Dodge Ram but ended up colliding with the building. He was brought into custody and found to be in possession of a pellet gun.

The 27 year old is now facing 12 charges including armed robbery, possession of stolen property, evade police, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace and breach of court conditions. He is expected to appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court today.

Court information #s 991028582, 991028583.
