Three people — an adult male and two male youths — have been charged following a vehicle theft from the Maidstone area.
Nicolas Petalas, 21, of North Battleford is charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and two counts of possession of a weapon while prohibited.
The two youth were charged with possession of property obtained by crime and failing to comply with various court orders.
All three subjects were remanded into custody, with first court appearances at Battleford Provincial Court on Friday.
According to police, on Sept. 20 members of the Battlefords Detachment GIS section located a vehicle recently stolen from the Maidstone detachment area.
With help from general duty members of Battlefords detachment as well as from the provincial GIS unit, the three individuals were arrested. An additional stolen vehicle, bear spray and ammunition were also recovered.
A search warrant was later executed at a dwelling, where police seized a firearm and some other evidence. Police say more charges are anticipated for the three individuals who were arrested.
