Stolen taxi drives through Cornwall Centre

A 32-year-old woman has been taken into custody after a joy-ride in a stolen taxi left multiple businesses damaged, including the Cornwall Centre.

Early Saturday morning, the Regina Police Service responded to a report of a Regina Co-Op Taxi theft in the 1100 block of Angus Street.

Police located the taxi and attempted a traffic stop. However, the vehicle evaded the police.

The stolen vehicle was later spotted as it rammed into the front doors of a business in the 2200 block of Broad Street. The vehicle would drive at slow speeds before it drove through the front of a business in the 1800 block of Hamilton Street.

The vehicle would then turn onto 11th Avenue, where it was observed driving through the south entrance doors of the Cornwall Centre.

The stolen taxi drove into the Cornwall Centre’s main level and then through the mall’s north entrance near Saskatchewan Drive. The taxi became hung up on the stairs, and the thirty-one-year-old female driver was taken into custody.

Police say the investigation is ongoing, and charges against the driver have not been determined.
