After several concrete bollards on City Square plaza were damaged on Saturday night at an estimated cost of $5,000-$10,000, Regina Police Service issued a press release Monday morning asking anyone with information on the crime, or who had noticed suspicious activity on the plaza that night, to contact either police or Crimestoppers.
Turns out, the police had actually been dispatched to the plaza on Saturday at 10:32 p.m. in response to a call from a concerned citizen about a red pick-up truck smashing into the bollards. When the police arrived, they found the truck unattended, but soon located the intoxicated driver in nearby Victoria Park.
According to this CBC report, he’ll be in court on May 15. As for why it took several days for police to realize that a crime they were investigating had already been solved, well, I’ll leave it to Led Zeppelin to explain.
