Regina Police successfully talk suspects out of trunk of car in hour and a half of negotiations

Regina, Saskatchewan – Two adults, a male and a female,  face a total of 16 charges after a traffic stop and lengthy negotiation on Saturday.

On Saturday, November 20, 2021, at about 12:48 a.m., a patrol member was requested to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle believed to have been involved in a Break and Enter outside of Regina. In the area of 5th Avenue and Queen Street the officer, in a marked patrol vehicle, activated his emergency equipment, but the suspect vehicle (a red Impala), refused to stop. The vehicle became stuck in the area of Hoffer Bay and Park Street. Tire deflation devices were used successfully, but the driver of the vehicle kept moving forward and reversing, ramming a police vehicle. After several attempts to drive away, the driver and passenger moved to the back of the vehicle and eventually, the trunk, before they were negotiated out successfully over an hour and a half later.
