The Saskatoon Police Service’s airplane and multiple cruisers were involved in the arrest of three people Saturday morning.
Around 3:30 a.m., officers tried pulling over a vehicle driving up and down alleys in the Meadow Green neighbourhood when the driver fled police.
Officers on the ground quit the pursuit soon after due to safety reasons.
The Air Support Unit was then able to locate the vehicle on the west side of the city, where police cruisers eventually stopped the vehicle.
Three people from Saskatoon were taken into custody on a number of charges, after police found a loaded sawed-off rifle and meth.
All suspects — between the ages of 19 and 21 — were brought before a Justice of the Peace Saturday.
