Male Arrested for Uttering Threats

On August 6, 2019, police were made aware of serious threats made by an adult male to commit acts of violence this weekend at a local business in Winkler. Members of the Winkler Police Service acted immediately by arresting the suspect and conducting a thorough investigation into the threatening comments.

Officers did not find any evidence that the suspect had access to weapons or that the suspect had a plan to commit these acts of violence.

The 36-year-old male resident of Winkler was released on a Promise to Appear in Morden Provincial Court on September 10, 2019 to face a charge of Uttering Threats. The suspect was also served an Undertaking Given to a Peace Officer with multiple conditions that the suspect must abide by.

The Winkler Police Service would like to request that the public refrain from sharing potentially false or inaccurate posts on social media. At this time, the Winkler Police Service can confirm that we are not aware of any imminent threat in relation to this matter.
