July 10, 2022 Theft of Motor Vehicle

Media Release

On July 10, 2022, police were called to suspicious activity in the 800 block of 2nd Street.  Two men were observed entering a vehicle and driving it away.  Police located the vehicle in the area and initiated a traffic stop.  The male driver, a 20 year old from Carnduff, was arrested on-scene for theft of a motor vehicle and impaired driving.  The passenger fled on foot at the outset of the traffic stop and was not immediately located.

Images of the male that fled were obtained from police vehicle in-car video.  Later that same day, that individual turned himself in to the Estevan RCMP Detachment and identified himself as having been involved in the vehicle theft.  RCMP transferred the 20 year old Carnduff male into EPS custody for further investigation, after which he was charged with theft of a motor vehicle and obstructing a police officer in the execution of their duty.

Both males were held in custody during the investigation and were subsequently released with future court dates to speak to the charges.

EPS is continuing to investigate this matter and would like to thank the public for the assistance provided during the investigation.
