Charges laid following search by K9 unit

Prince Albert’s K9 unit helped apprehend five suspects during an incident on Wednesday.

Around 9 p.m., officers noticed a stolen SUV traveling along the 600 block of Marquis Road. The vehicle continued on to Jasper Place before stopping. The suspects then abandoned the SUB and fled on foot.

Police set up a containment area and, with the help of PSD Daxa, were able to take five suspects into custody.

The suspects include a 16-year-old boy from Prince Albert, charged with possession of stolen property and resisting arrest, a 17-year-old boy from La Ronge, charged with possession of stolen property and breaching a court order, an 18-year-old man from La Ronge charged with possession of stolen property, resisting arrest, breaking and entering and breaching a court order, a 20-year-old man from Pinehouse charged with possession of stolen property and resisting arrest, and a 23-year-old man from Prince Albert charged with possession of a stolen vehicle.

All five appeared in provincial court on Friday.
