Four young people are facing charges following the discovery of a stolen vehicle from La Ronge in Prince Albert.


The Prince Albert Police Service says officers stopped a suspicious-looking vehicle in the city late yesterday afternoon.


After it was discovered the vehicle had been stolen from La Ronge, the officers arrested all six occupants of the vehicle. Two of them were later released without being charged.


A search of the stolen vehicle also turned up several articles that had been reported stolen from a La Ronge address. A sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun was also found in the vehicle.


The young people facing charges range in age from 12 to 21 years, and all face 3 counts of possession of stolen property.
