P.A. Police had a busy weekend after responding to 167 calls and arresting 40 people, most of which were for intoxicated people, evictions and disturbances.

Stolen vehicle

Officers recovered a stolen vehicle on Friday, Jan. 6 at 8:08 p.m. An officer driving a police cruiser noticed a blue four-door vehicle act suspicously. After following the vehicle into an alley, officers spotted a suspected male driver and two female passengers exit the vehicle and enter an apartment building on the 900 block of Central Ave.

Once the police ran the number on the licence plate and determined it was stolen, the 25-year-old man was arrested. Police also recovered a .22 rifle from the car. 

The man faces several firearm charges, unlawful possession of a motor vehicle and a breach of court orders.

He will appear in provincial court today, Jan. 9.


At 1:45 p.m. Prince Albert Police Service (PAPS) members responded to a robbery call on early Saturday morning. Officers were called to the 2600 block of Second Ave. W. 

The store employee told officers he attempted to stop a female suspect who allegedly stole batteries from the business. He said she then produced a knife, threatened him and asked for money. Police say the suspect then left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash. Officers searched the area with Daxa, the police service dog, but were unable to locate the woman, said to be in her 50s.

PAPS is asking anyone with information in regards to the robbery or the suspect to call the detachment or Crime Stoppers.
