In September, 2022, the Morden and Winkler Police Services, with assistance from the Winnipeg Police Service Firearms Investigation and Enforcement Unit (FIEU), commenced an investigation that determined a male was attempting to manufacture 3D-printed firearms in Winkler. On November 24, 2022, with assistance from the Regional Support Tactical Team, investigators executed a search warrant in the 200 block of 8th Street South in Winkler. Abram Friesen, 27-year-old years old of Plum Coulee, was taken into custody, along with a second adult suspect. A search of this residence resulted in the seizure of ammunition, as well as items related to the illicit production of firearms including a 3D printer and 3D printer filament. Both suspects were later released without charges, pending further investigation. An extensive police investigation was conducted with assistance from the RCMP National Weapons Enforcement Support Team (NWEST), RCMP Digital Forensics Services (DFS), and RCMP Forensic Identification Services (FIS). Police were able to determine that the seized 3D printer had in fact been used in the attempted production of an illegal firearm. On October 22, 2023, Friesen was arrested again in relation to this incident, and he has now been charged with the following offence: • Attempt to manufacture a firearm, to wit: a handgun; Friesen was released on an Undertaking with a court date of January 9, 2024, in Morden, Manitoba.

On October 17th at 9:30 a.m. police received a report of a vehicle theft from a business on Cargill Road. The theft occurred at about 5:30 a.m. Information was obtained that led police to believe the vehicle had travelled to Winnipeg later in the morning. At about 9:30 p.m. while on general patrol officers located the stolen vehicle in a parking lot of a retail business on Navigator Road. Police activated emergency lights and attempted to conduct a traffic stop but the vehicle fled from police southbound on Main street at an extremely high rate of speed. Due to the manner of driving and out of concern for the safety of the public and occupants of the vehicle, police aborted the pursuit and attempted to maintain visual contact. The truck was located near the intersection of 6th Street and Peters Avenue however the occupants had fled on foot. PSD Juno and her handler were requested to the scene to attempt in tracking the occupants. While PSD Juno was following the trail of the occupants from the abandoned vehicle, officers were also patrolling the area and located a male near 6th Street and Pembina Avenue whom they believed to be the driver of the stolen vehicle. While police were in contact with this male, PSD Juno was hot on the trail and after a few minutes found herself coming right up to where the male was already in custody with police, removing all doubt as to whether this was the right person. A second subject was arrested at a nearby residence. A 24 year old male and a 21 year old female both residents of Winkler face numerous charges and were remanded in custody. ... See MoreSee Less
