Police charge Regina woman who stole, sold rental car in 2019

Charges have been laid in a stolen auto investigation that has been active for two years in Regina.

The investigation began on March 21, 2019, when members of the Regina Police Service (RPS) Stolen Auto Unit learned of a vehicle that was stolen from a local car rental company. Police were told that a vehicle was rented out and not returned to the business.

RPS then received new information in May of 2021 that the vehicle had been sold and re-registered in Alberta.
