One man is facing a number of charges after being arrested Thursday afternoon by the Weyburn Police Service.  

Chief Jamie Blunden explained the WPS received a call from a woman who said a person had just gotten into her car on the west side of Weyburn and stolen a wallet from the vehicle.  

“Our members were dispatched down to the location,” Chief Blunden added. “We were able to apprehend this individual as a result of our apprehension and a further investigation, we determined that there were a bunch of outstanding warrants for this individual.” 

The warrants, which included charges of breaching an undertaking, possession of break-in tools, theft under $5,000 and breaking and entering, came from the Weyburn Police Service, the Weyburn RCMP and the Estevan Police Service. 

“There were an additional 26 charges laid in conjunction with the original charge of them under that we had him for from yesterday’s event,” Blunden added.  

The WPS identified the suspect as 34-year-old Christopher Borgen of Weyburn. He is currently in custody and will be making his next court appearance Monday. Blunden said further charges could be pending. 

“He was identified in a number of things, and plus, on top of that, we’ve also got ongoing investigations for some of the charges that haven’t been laid based on the warrants that were issued.”
