On November 16, 2019 at about 1:52 a.m., a canine officer, on patrol, located a suspicious vehicle in the area of 0-100 block Mikkelson Drive. The vehicle, a grey pickup truck, sped off when patrol officers activated emergency equipment.

The truck carried on, driving through a chain link fence in the 1900 block of Montague Street. The driver fled on foot and was located by the canine team and officers. The suspect heeded the verbal warning from the canine officer and exited a shed without incident. The 2002 Chev Silverado was confirmed stolen out of Yorkton.
