A 15 year old is facing charges in connection with a stolen property and auto incident.
Police were called out to the 1600 block of East Longworthy Bay Sunday morning around 3:30 to a reported theft in progress.
Upon arrival, it was learned a group of males were going through area vehicles. One resident confronted a suspect, who then pulled out a machete.
Earlier, police learned a vehicle had been stolen from the 3100 block of E Tregarva Drive, and at 4, saw it run a red light at Dewdney and Park. The vehicle later was found on the 1900 block of Montreal and Québec Street. K-9 units were deployed and a 15 year old male was tracked down.
The male, who can’t be named due to the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, faces a litany of charges, including theft of a motor vehicle and assault with a weapon.
He made his first appearance in provincial youth court Monday morning.
