Shortly before 12:00 noon today, the Saskatoon Police Service received a report of a stolen 2015 Chev Silverado pick-up truck. The truck had been equipped with On-Star tracking capability, and On-Star tracking program contacted the SPS at 2:00 p.m. notifying us that the truck was on the move.
The SPS Air Support was in the area at the time of the call and picked up the truck right away as the stolen vehicle began driving erratically on the east side of the city by driving into oncoming traffic. On request from SPS, On-Star was able to disable the truck from continuing to drive erratic and bring it to a stop. SPS ground units converged on the stolen vehicle and two males were taken into custody. There were no injuries or damage to any vehicles during the event.
The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
