Regina man wanted on kidnapping and firearms charges arrested by Broadview RCMP

Broadview RCMP were able to nab a suspect connected to a Regina Police investigation last week.

On the morning of Sept. 28, RCMP received a report of a stolen vehicle heading east on Highway #1. The stolen vehicle was first reported as part of an RPS investigation.

While officers attempted to stop the vehicle, the suspect fled the scene. Further investigation led to a search of a residence on the Ochapawace First Nation where the suspect was located and arrested. The suspect was found to be in possession of two firearms and a machete, which were all seized.

As a result, 29-year-old Tyler Lavallee faces the following charges:
