Break & Enter to Local Business
*Updated Release*

On October 23rd at about 12:40 a.m. police were notified of an intrusion alarm at a business on Foxfire Trail. While officers were responding to the call they were further informed that the owner of the business was watching their video surveillance remotely from a different location and could see someone inside the building. Upon arrival officers noticed a broken exterior window and briefly saw the suspect inside. When the suspect became aware of the police presence he ran from the window and further into the building. Police waited for assistance from the Morden and Altona Police Services as well as Winkler’s K9 unit with service dog Juno before entering the building. A thorough search was conducted within the business and the lone suspect was eventually located hiding in an elevated storage area.

A 17 year old youth from Roseau River was arrested and is facing charges of break and enter, possession of cannabis by a young person and for consumption of alcohol by a minor.

This week is National Teen Driver Safety Week! Over the last decade, teen drivers in Manitoba have been involved in 10 per cent of fatal crashes and eight per cent of injury crashes. Let’s put a stop to these preventable deaths by encouraging teen drivers to practice good driving behaviours which include reducing their speed, not driving while impaired, and reducing aggressive and distracted driving.

#NTDSW2020 runs October 18 – 24 and is organized by Parachute Canada. For more information and resources, visit Parachute’s website (link in our bio).

On October 17, 2020, a member of the Winkler Police Service observed a vehicle driven by a male believed to be violating release conditions stemming from an arrest in May.

At approximately 10:24 p.m., police initiated a traffic stop on this vehicle in the area of 6th Street and Mountain Avenue. In speaking with the male, police noted him to be exhibiting signs of drug impairment. The male was subjected to a Standardized Field Sobriety Test and, after performing poorly on the test, he was arrested for impaired driving.

A Winkler Police Service Drug Recognition Expert conducted an evaluation on the male and determined that his ability to operate a conveyance was impaired by cannabis.

The 19-year-old male of Schanzenfeld was released on an Undertaking with a court date of December 22, 2020 in Morden where he will face charges of failing to comply with conditions of an Undertaking and with operating a conveyance while impaired.
