Kiefer Hill is in custody again. He was arrested by the Regina Police Service this weekend and is being held in custody.
He will appear in court in Regina.
White Butte RCMP issued an arrest warrant for him last week.
Hill formerly lived in Welwyn for a short time, and has been arrested numerous times by RCMP in the region.
Previously arrested by Moosomin RCMP, Moose Jaw City Police, and Regina City Police
Back in October, Hill, who had been living in the Welwyn area, was charged with drug-impaired driving after crashing what police say was a stolen vehicle in Moose Jaw.
Officers saw the truck hit a parked vehicle in Moose Jaw.
Police say Hill, the man driving the truck, was unconscious behind the wheel.
According to Moose Jaw City Police, a trained Drug Recognition Evaluator determined Hill 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.
In that case, Hill faced various charges, including drug-impaired driving, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and possession of a firearm.
At the time he was arrested in Moose Jaw, he was also wanted on numerous warrants from Saskatoon, Esterhazy and Melville.
Previously, on March 8, 2018, Moosomin RCMP members with the assistance of Esterhazy RCMP members arrested Hill where he was hiding in a grove of trees in the Welwyn area.
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 Ste. 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 ongoing investigations.
Hill had been previously arrested after a theft in Welwyn on February 17, 2018.
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.
