February crime spree results in Regina man facing 20 charges including attempted murder


A 29-year-old Regina man faces a variety of charges after several incidents last month including one where a man was shot at and a woman was carjacked.

Police say the first incident on February 3 was on Ingersoll Crescent, near Martin Collegiate in the city’s west end, when a man who was on foot fired a shot in the direction of a vehicle that approached him.

In the second incident on February 10, an armed man demanded money after going into a restaurant on Rochdale Boulevard. He left the restaurant and allegedly pointed a weapon at a woman inside a vehicle telling those inside to get out before driving away at a high rate of speed going through several red lights and hitting two other vehicles before going down the Lewvan at a high rate of speed once again running red lights.

The vehicle was eventually found, but the suspect was not located and taken into custody until February 12 in Morse.

Further investigation found the suspect, Thomas Chartrand, to be responsible for several other crimes including car theft.

In total, he faces 20 charges. He was in court this (Monday) morning.
