Police in the Lloydminster area are looking for a man who allegedly walked away from a rollover involving a stolen vehicle, and made off in another stolen unit.

RCMP were called, along with other emergency crews at around 11:20 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 31, to a rollover west of Marshall along Highway 16. They arrived to find a woman with non-life-threatening injuries, and took her to the hospital. But police said there had been someone else in the vehicle, who was no longer there. And the vehicle had been stolen from Alvena, in the Wakaw area.

The RCMP Police Dog Service helped track the suspect’s trail to a nearby acreage, where police determined a 2009 red Kawasaki Teryx side-by-side, had been stolen.

Police are now looking for a suspect identified as Jesse Micheal Graver, 26, of Lloydminster. He’s wanted on one count each of theft over $5,000 and possession of stolen property over $5,000, as well as an unrelated charge from Saskatoon of being unlawfully at large.

RCMP added Graver is not considered a risk to the public. But anyone who sees him is advised to be cautious and call 911.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Maidstone RCMP at 306-893-4800 or Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers, 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or at www.saskcrimestoppers.com.
