Kiefer Hill, who has lived in the Welwyn and Rocanville areas, has been charged with drug-impaired driving after crashing what police say was a stolen vehicle in Moose Jaw on Tuesday night.

Officers saw the truck hit a parked vehicle in Moose Jaw around 10:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say Kiefer Hill, the man driving the truck, was unconscious behind the wheel.

According to Moose Jaw City Police, a trained Drug Recognition Evaluator determined the man was high on drugs and he was charged with impaired driving.

Further investigation revealed the truck he was driving was stolen from Southey, and there were several stolen items in the vehicle.

Kiefer Hill, 27, is facing various charges, including drug-impaired driving, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and possession of a firearm.

Moose Jaw police say he was also wanted on numerous warrants from Saskatoon, Esterhazy and Melville.

He remains in custody and will appear in court today, Oct. 22.

World-Spectator readers will recognize Kiefer Hill’s name. He was mentioned in the RCMP report in the Oct. 8 World-Spectator for outstanding warrants, and his arrests have been reported in the past.

Back in March, RCMP officers arrested Hill in a grove of trees.

Moosomin RCMP members with the assistance of Esterhazy RCMP members arrested Hill on the afternoon of Thursday, March 8.

Hill fled from a rural property north of Welwyn were he had showed up uninvited.

Hill had multiple warrants for his arrest as he had failed to appear in court as directed and also had committed offences in Esterhazy and Churchbridge that he was charged with.

Hill attempted to flee on foot into a wooded grove on a pasture adjacent to Hwy 600 south of St. Marthe after his vehicle ran out of gas.

Members were able to contain the area until enough resources arrived to search the grove.

Hill was located cold, hiding under some foliage. He was charged with failing to attend court, failing to comply with his conditions, theft and break and enter to a business.

Subsequently a search warrant was drafted, sworn and executed on Kiefer’s vehicles and residence in Welwyn.

The warrant was fruitful as numerous items were seized, including stolen items from the aforementioned investigations.

Hill had been previously arrested after a theft in Welwyn on February 17.

In that case, Hill entered a house in Welwyn, stole a purse which contained keys to a Jeep and stole the vehicle.

He was located by Regina City Police two days later, asleep in the stolen vehicle.

He was arrested by Regina City Police for possession of stolen property, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace, and breaching his conditions to keep the peace and be of good behavior.
