Shed and Garage Break and Enters

On Friday morning police received reports of three garages and two sheds that had been unlawfully entered overnight. Some of the locked garage walk in doors had been forced open, and sheds had the exterior locks pried off. These offences occurred from 8th Street to 15th Street in the 600 to 1200 blocks, and it is believed occurred between 2:00 a.m. and 5:45 a.m. based on details gathered during the investigations. Stolen were various tools, a barbeque still in the factory packaging, and two old and unused laptops. There are no suspects in these continuing investigations.

 

Theft/Fraud/Possess Methamphetamine

On Friday evening around 6 p.m., a 42 year old Brandon male was arrested in the 300 block of 10th Street. He was recognized by officers who knew the male was wanted for an outstanding theft from a local retailer on April 3, and for fraudulent use of a stolen credit card on April 10. When arrested a small quantity of crystal methamphetamine was located on the suspect. He was lodged at the Brandon Correctional Centre and will be remanded this morning for these offences, as well as three counts of Breach of Recognizance.

 

Impaired Driving

 On Friday evening at 10:54 p.m. a vehicle was observed travelling west bound on Pacific Avenue at 11th Street at a high rate of speed. The vehicle proceeded north off of Pacific Avenue onto 18th Street. Due to the excessive speed, officers were only able to get close enough to the vehicle after it had turned off of 18th Street onto the gravel portion of the river dyke along the south bank. The vehicle left the gravel roadway and became stuck in the soggy conditions in the area north of the 600 block of Parker Boulevard. The driver who was the lone occupant fled, and a canine unit was deployed. The police service dog and handler located the driver hiding in the area, and he was taken into custody without the dog having to make an apprehension. He was taken to the Brandon Police Service office where he provided breathalyzer samples. A 41 year old male from Erickson, Manitoba, is charged with Impaired Driving, Driving over the legal blood/alcohol limit, Prohibited Driving, and Take a Motor Vehicle without the Owners Consent. He was lodged at the Brandon Correctional Institute and will be remanded this morning.
