Two charged after pursuit

Police have filed charges against two Prince Albert residents following a short pursuit on Wednesday.

The incident began just before 1:30 p.m. when police spotted a stolen car along the 100 block of 20th Street West. The driver refused to pull over, and instead traveled north across Diefenbaker Bridge. Police did not pursue the driver due to public safety concerns, however a short time later they found it in the ditch just north of the Shellbrook overpass.

A 25-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman were spotted leaving the car and apprehended following a short pursuit on foot.

Police have charged the man with possession of stolen property, evading police, resisting arrest and breaching a court order. He also had one outstanding warrant for stolen property.

The woman was also charged with possession of stolen property and breach of a court order, and also has one outstanding warrant for theft of a motor vehicle.

Both suspects appeared in provincial court on Friday.
