Prince Albert police responded to 274 calls between Friday afternoon and Monday morning—one of which involved arranging a meeting with an accused online seller of a stolen watch.

Earlier this month, someone broke into a home.

A resident directed police to a post on a local online buy and sell page on Sunday afternoon.

Officers arrested a 38-year-old man for possession of stolen property and recovered the watch.

Weapons possession

Police also arrested two men for possession of dangerous weapons in separate calls.

First, police went to a business on the unit block of 13th Street West at about 5:40 p.m. on Friday. Someone said a man was threatening a customer.

After a short chase as the suspect ran away, officers arrested the 22-year-old on several weapons-related charges.

He was scheduled to appear in provincial court on Monday morning.

Then, on Saturday afternoon, police arrested a man for public intoxication at the 200 block of 15th Street West near the Sherwin-Williams Paint Store.

After investigating further, they found the suspect was carrying a large knife and charged him with carrying a concealed weapon.

Stolen vehicle

Police arrested three suspects on Saturday in relation to a stolen vehicle.

Officers spotted the vehicle that morning at the 1400 block of 15th Avenue East, but did not follow it because of public safety concerns.

However, they located it at nearby business shortly after.

Three women, ages 18, 19 and 24, were arrested. The 24-year-old is also charged with possession of a controlled substance in relation to the incident.

Break and enter

A 53-year-old man has been arrested following a break and enter on the 200 block of 38th Street East, which is near DriveNation.

Just before 1 p.m. on Sunday, the man allegedly barricaded himself into the building, but officers arrested him soon after during a search.
