Two Moose Jaw teenagers charged in Saska­toon

Moose Jaw Times Herald - - COMING UP - SARAH LADIK

Two young men from Moose Jaw are fac­ing charges in Saska­toon af­ter an in­ci­dent in­volv­ing a stolen ve­hi­cle and an at­tempted es­cape from po­lice early Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

A re­lease from the Saska­toon Po­lice Ser­vice stated that of­fi­cers were alerted to a white Nis­san Max­ima that had been stolen and was trav­el­ling from Moose Jaw to Saska­toon.

The ve­hi­cle was lo­cated on McKercher Drive and when po­lice tried to stop the car, the oc­cu­pants tried to get away. This at­tempt was foiled when po­lice used a tire de­fla­tion de­vice, which dis­abled the ve­hi­cle, send­ing it into a ditch at Clarence Av­enue and Cir­cle Drive.

Of­fi­cers found two boys, aged 15 and 16, in the car, along with an 11-year-old girl. All three were taken into cus­tody and the boys charged with pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty.

The 16-year-old was also charged with evad­ing po­lice. Mem­bers of the Saska­toon Cri­sis In­ter­ven­tion Ser­vice were called to help with the 11-year-old.

Const. Kyle Cun­ning­ham of the Moose Jaw Po­lice Ser­vice con­firmed that the car had been re­ported stolen — with the keys in it — in Moose Jaw, but could not say whether the young peo­ple were known to po­lice. As they are all mi­nors, their names will not be re­leased.
