Police look for tagging suspects

The Prince Albert Police Service is asking for the public’s assistance identifying suspects from camera footage who are wanted for spray painting several locations in the city.

The police obtained camera footage of what appears to be one, possibly two, suspects involved in spray painting incidents on November 15, 2016.

In the incident footage around 11:48 p.m. it appears to show a suspect spray painting a railway power box and in the background a second possible suspect appears to be walking away from a business on 3rd Avenue West that was also spray painted.

The suspect is described as a slender male, with shaggy brown hair, dark pants, dark jacket with a lighter coloured emblem on the left breast of the jacket and left sleeve near the wrist.

The shoes were light coloured with the soles lighter than the shoes.

Police seize shotgun

At about 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Prince Albert Police Service officers were conducting routine patrol checks around Central Avenue and 10th Street. When, while patrolling a back alley, police identified a suspicious black Dodge Nitro with people inside and the lights off.

Officers approached the vehicle and talked to the occupants. They saw a shotgun inside and arrested all three occupants.

About 600 grams of cocaine with a street value of about $30,000, 6.2 grams of methamphetamine with a street value of about $600 and $565 in cash was seized.
