Regina, Saskatchewan – A 24 year-old male from Edenwold, Saskatchewan, is facing a dozen charges in connection with incidents of Break, Enter and Theft that occurred over the weekend.
On Saturday, April 22, 2017, just after 11:30 p.m., police were dispatched to a business in the 1800 block of Victoria Avenue East for a report of a theft in progress.
