A 35-year-old Regina man is facing theft and flight from police charges, after police recovered a stolen vehicle late Sunday night.
Officers were sent to a parking lot on the 4200 block of Albert Street in south Regina where they found a man sleeping behind the wheel of a Pontiac Grand-Prix, that had been reported stolen.
The suspect, Barry Allan Merk was taken into custody without incident.
Further investigation revealed the vehicle had evaded police earlier this month.
Merk makes his first court appearance Tuesday morning.
