LAST 24 HOURS:
Youth Charged in Second Stolen Vehicle Incident:
Yesterday it was reported that a 15 year old had been charged in relation to a stolen vehicle when he fled on foot from a traffic stop. As a result of a complaint that came in yesterday afternoon, the same 15 year old male has been additionally charged with theft of a motor vehicle, mischief to property, and theft under $5000. A resident of Otter Bay called to report that her vehicle had been taken and was returned, but to a different spot in the driveway. There was damage to the vehicle itself as well as to items that had been in it at the time it was stolen. As the accused was already in custody on the previous charges, he was re-arrested and will appear in Court again today.
Breach of Court Orders:
On Monday afternoon, at about 3:40 PM, we received a complaint of a possible impaired driver who had attended to a vendor in the 3500 block Victoria Avenue. Upon Police arrival, the vehicle was located and the current operator identified. It was learned that the 23 year old male, from Birdtail Sioux First Nation, was bound by two separate court orders, both of which directed that he was to abstain from the consumption of alcohol. As a result, he was arrested and lodged at Brandon Correctional Center to appear in Court today facing four counts of failing to comply with Recognizance Order.
Just before midnight on Monday, we received a report from an employee of a group home that a 15 year old male resident had returned home in an intoxicated state. A records check showed that he was the subject of an undertaking that included a condition that he was not to possess or consume alcohol. The accused was arrested for two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking and was lodged to appear in Brandon Provincial Court today.
Victoria Avenue Traffic Collisions:
At approximately 6:15 PM, members responded to a single vehicle rollover in the 4500 block Victoria Avenue. The operator of the vehicle was transported to BRHC as a precaution and was treated and released. The collision is still under investigation but alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
Just after 8:00 PM, it was requested that our members assist Brandon Fire & Emergency Services personnel on Highway 1A, just west of Brandon for a fatal vehicle versus bicyclist collision. Members attended and assisted with traffic control and the highway was closed for investigational purposes. As this is a RCMP investigation, the Brandon Police Service will not be releasing any further details.
At about 3:45 PM Monday afternoon, security from BRHC requested police assistance with a 25 year old male who had refused to leave the premise, after being sent away earlier in the afternoon for causing a disturbance. He was not requiring medical treatment. The male continued to refuse to leave when members arrived on scene. When he was being removed, he violently resisted and he had to be physically restrained. The accused was lodged at Brandon Correctional Center to prevent a continuation of a breach of the peace.
A 39 year old male was taken into custody under the Mental Health Act last evening around 9:00 PM after his spouse reported him acting in a bizarre manner. When members attended, the accused was uncooperative and was transported to an appropriate care facility.
A 17 year old female was reported as being out of control at a foster home and was taken into custody to prevent a continuation of a breach of the peace.
At about 8:30 PM, a 15 year old female was reported by her foster parent as having been drinking and having left the residence. She was located approximately 2 hours later and was lodged at Brandon Correctional Center under the Liquor & Gaming Control Act for under aged drinking. She will be released later this morning after receiving a ticket for the offence.
Since Friday morning, Brandon Police Service members responded to approximately 395 calls for service, including self-initiated calls.
