City police arrested two men Aug. 19, after locating a black BMW reported stolen in Calgary.

Police had been searching for the vehicle throughout the day, as they had received a report from Brooks RCMP that it had failed to pull over for them following an assault, as well as a report of gas theft in Medicine Hat.

Both men have been charged with offences including possessing stolen property over $5,000, possessing a weapon, possessing break-in instruments, possessing stolen property under $5,000, and possessing a controlled substance.
