RCMP continue to search for a man who escaped from custody last week.

Twenty-one-year-old Solomon Toutsaint was appearing in court in Black Lake on break and enter charges when he escaped police custody on January 21.

While at large, Toutsaint has taunted the police a few times with Facebook posts such as “Catch me if you can, lol” and “Imma a bad boy.”

RCMP Stony Rapids detachment Corporal Jacqueline Spence says police believe the escaped man to still be in the area.

"The Stony Rapids RCMP are actively looking for Solomon Toutsaint. It is a priority for our detachment. We have no reason to believe he is outside of the community right now -- and as we have said before in our previous news releases, we believe he is a non-violent offender."

The Facebook posts have since been removed.

Cameco announced an expansion of its Touchdown for Dreams program Wednesday afternoon to help more women suffering with life threatening forms of cancer make their dreams come true.

Over the next two years, the program will grant seven to ten wishes per year with each woman getting between $7,500 to $10,000 to fulfill their dream.

This is up from the current five dreams per year at a maximum of $5,000.

Cameco spokesperson Jonathan Huntington says women are asked to select a dream when they apply for the program and it is really up to them what they use the money for if selected.

“So they might put down on their form I’d like a trip to Disneyland and if that can happen within the rough estimates of price that we’ve put on it, then we make that happen,” he says. “Other people have asked for a basement renovation or others have asked for a living room renovation.”

The program expansion will also include the unveiling of a mobile unit in northern Saskatchewan to increase cancer awareness and education.

Huntington says the details of the northern mobile unit are still being ironed out but it will be launched in the spring.

“It’s going to be a mobile unit that travels through certain parts of northern Saskatchewan that will help spread cancer awareness education and help with early detection of cancer. So, we’re looking forward to it, we can’t wait to unveil it and then we will obviously have more news to come on it when it’s ready to go.”

Saskatchewan Roughrider fans have contributed close to $90,000 to the program by buying souvenirs at the annual Cameco Touchdown for Dreams pink football game.

The program is a partnership between the uranium mining company, the Riders and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.

*NOTE -- A previous version of this story indicated the two suspects were facing attempted murder charges.  RCMP have since issued a corrected press release indicating that is not the case.

 

Two men suspects arrested after a break-in at a Lloydminster liquor store and subsequent police chase have been identified.

Two pickup trucks connected to the break-in on early Tuesday morning were spotted shortly after and police were able to stop one of the trucks with a spike belt.

Police say an incident occurred which lead to an officer firing his gun, but no one was hurt.

Twenty-nine-year-old Lynden Belly of Onion Lake and 20-year-old Joel Dillon of Lloydminster are currently in police custody.

They have been charged with break and enter, possession of stolen property and evading police in a motor vehicle.

Belly is facing an additional charge of dangerous driving.

Both men are due in court tomorrow.

The shooting is under investigation by the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team.

The other pickup truck, a 1993 Chevrolet, has yet to be located.
