EDMONTON — A 23-year-old man is facing charges after an Uber ride-hailing vehicle was carjacked and driven through a fence at the Edmonton Remand Centre.
Police say a report came in just after midnight that a suspect had stolen the vehicle in north Edmonton while he was a passenger.
Officers received a report shortly after that an impaired driver had crashed through the remand centre's fence and into a parking lot.
Jail staff held the driver until police arrived and confirmed it was the same suspect in both cases.
Police say there were no injuries.
