LAST 24 HOURS:
Arrest Warrants Executed:
On Monday afternoon Police were called to the offices of Probation Services for a 49 year old male who had reported there and they had previously issued a warrant for his arrest. The accused was taken into custody without incident and was lodged at Brandon Correctional Center to appear in Court this morning.
On Monday evening we received a supervision suspension warrant from the Manitoba Youth Center for a 17 year old female who resides in a group home in Brandon. Members attended to the residence and arrested the youth on the strength of the warrant. She was lodged at Brandon Correctional Center pending a review of her release status.
Impaired Driver/Refuse Breathalyzer:
Just before 2:00 PM Monday afternoon, an off-duty police officer from Regina reported that he was following a vehicle which he believed was being operated by an impaired driver. The vehicle was stopped near 18th Street & Victoria Avenue and the driver showed signs of impairment. He was brought back to the police station but subsequently refused to provide breath samples. The 52 year old male from Melita was lodged at Brandon Correctional Center due to his state of intoxication. He was released from custody later on and is to appear in Brandon Provincial Court on August 07th facing a charge of impaired driving and refusing to provide breath samples.
Theft, Breach of Court Orders:
At about 2:45 PM Monday, Police were called to a store in the 900 block Victoria Avenue after employees apprehended a female suspect who had attempted to steal approximately $800 in merchandise. Upon attending, members also determined that the accused was on an Undertaking and a Probation Order, both of which prohibited her from attending to the store. The 35 year old female, who is from Brandon, was released and is to appear in Brandon Provincial Court on July 31st to answer to these charges.
Pizza Delivery Driver Robbed with Suspect Arrested:
At approximately 2:30 this morning, a call was received reporting that an employee who had been delivering pizza had just been robbed. The ensuing investigation showed that the driver had made a delivery to a residence in the 3500 block Willowdale Crescent without incident. When he returned to his vehicle though, a male approached him and initially asked for some money to purchase alcohol. When the driver refused, the male suspect then demanded all of the money carried by the driver and a threat of violence was made. The suspect had made a prior comment about having an edged weapon. The investigation led the members back to the original address where the delivery had been made and the suspect and money were located within. A 26 year old male from Sioux Valley Dakota Nation was arrested and lodged at Brandon Correctional Center to appear in Brandon Provincial Court this morning facing one count of robbery with violence.
Two people were lodged under the Intoxicated Persons Detention Act from separate incidents.
A 51 year old woman was picked up at 11:00 AM Monday morning after she was located standing in the middle of the 200 block 9th Street in a highly intoxicated state. We could not locate anyone to care for her so she was lodged for her own safety.
A 33 year old male was located in the 800 block Pacific Avenue last evening in a highly intoxicated state. He too was lodged for his safety.
