37 year old Estevan Male Facing Numerous Charges

A 37 year-old Estevan male is facing a total of 15 charges after police investigation last night into a recent robbery.

Just minutes after midnight on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, officers were dispatched to a business location in the 700 block of Victoria Avenue when a caller indicated she had spotted a car stolen from her three days earlier in a robbery. The complainant also said the suspect may have access to a firearm in the vehicle.

Several police units went to the location and were able to find the suspect inside the business. He was arrested without incident. A search of the stolen vehicle yielded two firearms (one a sawed-off shotgun), ammunition, two bags of substances later confirmed to be cocaine and fentanyl, five cellphones and cash. Officers learned that the suspect was on several court-ordered conditions, among them a firearms prohibition. Further investigation led to numerous charges.
