On Nov. 10, 2019, at approximately 12:50 a.m., an officer from the North Battleford Crime Reduction Team (CRT) noticed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed heading east on Highway 16 toward Saskatoon.
The CRT officer initiated efforts to close the distance between the police vehicle and the suspect vehicle. However, the suspect vehicle continued to travel away at high speeds and moved into the westbound lane.
Warman RCMP was engaged and attempted to deploy a spike belt, but was unsuccessful. The suspect was observed to be heading south on Township Road 390. Officers fully disengaged and conducted patrols.
A description of the suspect vehicle was shared among police agencies in the area.
Approximately 10 minutes later, Corman Park Police located the vehicle west of Saskatoon. Saskatoon Police Service Air One located the vehicle travelling on oncoming traffic along Highway 14. At 1:56 a.m., SPS Air One tracked the suspect driver who was observed to enter into an unknown residence.
Initial attempts by CRT using a loud speaker and sirens to make contact with occupants did not yield any response or acknowledgement. North Battleford CRT, Biggar RCMP, Warman RCMP, RCMP Police Dog Services and Corman Park Police made entry into the residence. Three occupants were located in the residence, including the suspect driver.
Flint James Vayro (DOB: 1991-10-13) was taken into custody and has been charged with Flight, Dangerous Operation, Operate while Prohibited, and Breaching a Condition of an Undertaking (Domestic), in addition to previous assault charges.
Vayro was remanded for Provincial Court on Nov. 12, 2019, in Saskatoon.
