A 30 year-old Regina male was taken safely into custody on June 3, 2016 after an incident in the City’s South East that involved Patrol, Canine, Crisis Negotiators and SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) members, who responded to an incident involving an adult male who was threatening harm to himself.
At approximately 11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 3, 2016 patrol members were dispatched to a house on Britannia Place in SE Regina. Information received in the call indicated an adult male was in the garage on the property and threatening to harm himself. Patrol members arrived and removed the other residents of the house to safety, but the male would not allow himself to be taken into custody. Because of the seriousness of the incident, a request was made for Crisis Negotiators, SWAT and Canine members. After a lengthy negotiation, the male subject surrendered to police at approximately 5:40 p.m.
The police investigation has been concluded and the 30 year Regina male has been charged with;
- Possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to public peace [88 CC]
- Careless Storage of a Firearm/Ammunition [86(1) CC] x 3
The 30 year-old male will make his first court appearance on these charges in Provincial Court on July 27, 2016 at 09:30 a.m.
