The Prince Albert Police Service responded to 312 calls for service this weekend, on top of completing 73 neighbourhood patrols.
One call took place at about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday when officers on routine patrol attempted to stop a speeding vehicle.
Then, Police Service Dog Kal located the male suspect hiding in a garbage bin on the 400 block of 25th Street West.
They located his vehicle a short time later, as well as a small amount of methamphetamine.
The 46-year-old man is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failing to stop for police and possession of a controlled substance in relation to this incident.
Police are investigating a separate call from the weekend involving gun shots to a building.
The release said the incident occurred on the 300 block of 32nd Street West, where officers were dispatched around 4 a.m. Police located ammunition, various knives and a sawed-off firearm.
At around 4 a.m. on Sunday, police on routine patrol encountered a woman walking near Second Avenue and 24th Street West.
According to a news release, she appeared to be experiencing a mental health crisis while armed with edged weapons. Police say this posed a risk to both herself and the public.
They attempted to disarm the woman and, without any success, discharged a conductive energy device to safely take her into custody.
She was treated for minor injuries, and the Police and Crisis Team (PACT) has connected her with follow-up supports.
