One arrested after evading police
The Saskatoon Police Service’s K-9 Unit and Air Support Unit teamed up to make an arrest, after a driver attempted to evade police on Tuesday.
At around 10:45 p.m., on December 7th, 2021, K-9 Unit officers attempted to pull over a truck in the 300 block of Avenue Q South. The driver failed to stop but the Aerial Support Unit (ASU) was watching. The K-9 Unit and Patrol officers were able to fall back, as air support tracked the vehicle, which eventually stopped in a parking lot in the 300 block of Avenue H South. ASU was able to continue tracking the driver, and recorded him hiding clothing, in a back yard, before continuing to flee the area.
The SPS K-9 Unit located the driver near the intersection of 20th Street and Avenue H South. He was taken into custody without further incident. When searched, the 26-year-old man was found to be in possession of methamphetamine.
The 26-year-old man faces charges of Dangerous Driving, Evading Police, and Possession of Methamphetamine.
