A 25-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man were brought before a judge in Regina on Monday on fraud and theft charges after being arrested last week.

On June 16 at 1:15 p.m. police went to the 200 block of North Westpointe Estate after gathering information that a man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant was at the home. There, the man and a woman were in a vehicle being driven by another man.

After a foot chase with the male suspect, he was arrested. The woman — whom police described as “also arrestable on numerous charges” — struggled with an officer but was also eventually arrested. A female officer was taken to hospital with injuries.

The woman is charged with assaulting a peace officer; resisting arrest; two charges of failure to comply with a recognizance; four charges of fraud under $5,000; theft under $5,000; two charges of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000; and seven charges of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.

The man is charged with fraud under $5,000; theft under $5,000; and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.
