For the last 24 hours:


Attempt Escape Lawful Custody

On Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., a prisoner in custody at BPS within the holding cell area attempted to escape from detention. After completing a phone call to legal counsel and while being escorted back to his cell, the male announced his frustration at being in custody and attempted to escape via a secure door in the cell area. This door is locked continuously and requires special measures to open in order to gain access to the exterior of the police service building and as a result, the male was not able to make good on his escape attempt. A 29-year-old male from Brandon is charged with attempting to escape lawful custody and will be appearing before a Justice this morning.

Mischief to Property

At 5:40 p.m. on Tuesday, a citizen reported a male acting in a bizarre fashion in the downtown area. Police located a 34-year-old male of no fixed address high on meth, who was paranoid and confused. Police took the male into custody for his own safety with the intention of detaining him in custody until he was coherent enough to release. Once in the rear of the police vehicle, the male began kicking a rear door and window. The damage sustained rendered the back door inoperable and the police vehicle is now out of service. The male is in custody in cells at the police service building, and will be released for court in September, charged with one count of mischief to property under $5,000

Possess Meth for the Purpose of Trafficking

At 8:20 p.m. on Tuesday, police conducted a vehicle stop on the #1 Highway. The operator, a 23-year-old from rural Manitoba was found to be the subject of several arrest warrants held by the Manitoba First Nations Police Service. The backpack in possession of the male was searched incidental to arrest and was found to contain a quantity of prescription medication, crack cocaine, and methamphetamine. The male is in custody at the police service charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. He will appear before a Justice this morning.

Possess Firearm in a Motor Vehicle

AT 10:00 p.m. Tuesday, a motor vehicle stop was conducted in the 500 block of 13th Street. Located within the vehicle was a loaded 9 mm pistol and ammunition.

Breach of Peace

At 11:10 p.m. Tuesday, a 32-year-old male of no fixed address while high on methamphetamine, attempted to gain entry into a vehicle occupied by a mother and her children in the south end of the city. The male was not successful, the occupants were unharmed, and no damage was done to the vehicle. As the mother and children left their vehicle, the male approached them again and kicked the mother and the family dog. They were able to flee and call police. The male was located in the area and taken into custody to be held until sober. The complainant declined to proceed with a charge against the male, and neither her nor the dog were injured. 


Possess Meth and Proceeds of Crime
