Regina Police say a 31 year-old man, who was the subject of an outstanding warrant for failing to attend court earlier this month, has been arrested.
There were several conditions imposed 31-year old Harold Joseph Hanson, including not to possess weapons or ammunition, as well as a prohibited firearms order.
He now faces additional charges in connection with the possession of a sawed-off shotgun and ammunition.
On Sunday, police received information indicating a Regina man was in possession of a firearm, contrary to court-ordered conditions.
Police were also aware of a bench warrant that was issued when the male failed to attend court on October 16.
Officers found the man outside a business in the 5000 block of 4th Avenue.
The male suspect got into the passenger seat of a van, then exited and started walking.
It’s alleged he was wearing two sets of body armour. Subsequent charges allege he had some ammunition in his pocket according to police.
The van took off when police tried to stop it. It was later found, abandoned, in an alley in the 600 block of King Street.
A search of this vehicle found a sawed-off shotgun and ammunition.
Investigation continues to identify and locate the driver of the van.
