A Red Deer man in the middle of serving a sentence for a long list of criminal offences is a suspect in an incident that resulted in a Regina police officer being injured in a vehicle crash.

A Canada-wide search warrant has been issued for Jason John Dunlop, 33, of Red Deer, for being unlawfully at large. At the time of the collision, which took place on Wednesday in Regina, Dunlop was serving a two-year sentence for a slew of charges, including dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, dangerous flight from police, obstructing a peace officer, possession of stolen property both under $5,000 and over $5,000, theft under $5,000 and careless storage of a firearm.

In September 2012, he pleaded guilty to these charges stemming from a police chase that started in Stettler and ended in Three Hills. At the time, he was driving a stolen Ford F-350 while hauling stolen copper wire and illegally carrying firearms. During the four-hour chase, speeds reached 150 to 170 km/h.

According to Corrections Service Canada, his sentence was set to end on Sept. 12, 2014.

Regina police issued a release stating that at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, a police officer was hit in a collision in downtown Regina. They suspect Dunlop is responsible and are asking for information about his whereabouts.

Dunlop is described as Caucasian, medium build, about 1.78 metres (five foot eight) tall and weighs 90.5 kg (about 200 pounds). He has brown hair and green eyes with short, cropped hair. He was last seen driving a white Ford F-350 super-crew long box with Alberta licence plate BJK 4423. There is damage to the passenger side front bumper and on the driver’s side from the door to the back of the truck.

Police say he is considered dangerous and ask people not to approach him, but to instead contact their local police department or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
