LAST 24 HOURS:
Arrest Warrants Executed:
On Tuesday morning, the Dauphin detachment of the RCMP advised that they had arrested a 38 year old woman from their town on the strength of an arrest warrant held by us. The warrant was for the offence of theft under $5000, which occurred in April of this year at a local business. The accused was released from custody and is to appear in Brandon Provincial Court on October 20th.
At about 3:30 Tuesday afternoon, a mother called Police to report that her 15 year old son was at an address in the 1200 block Lorne Avenue and that there was a warrant for his arrest issued. Members confirmed that there were two warrants for the youths arrest for failing to comply with a sentence. He was located, arrested on the strength of the warrants, and lodged at Brandon Correctional Center to appear in Court this morning.
This morning, at approximately 1:30 AM, a member on general patrol conducted a persons check of a male in the 1400 block Park Avenue. A records query showed that there was a warrant for his arrest for failing to attend for identification and a second warrant for arrest held by Dauphin RCMP for failing to comply with Probation Order and an offence under the former Liquor Control Act. Further, the 20 year old man was also the subject of a Recognizance Order with an included condition that he abstain from alcohol and the accused was not only intoxicated, he was also in possession of some liquor. The accused, who is of no fixed address, was arrested and lodged at Brandon Correctional Center to appear in Court this morning.
Attempt Break & Enter to Business:
We received an alarm notification last night at about 11:00 PM advising of an activation at a business located in the 1500 block 18th Street North. Members investigating the report discovered that an attempt had been made to pry open a door on the building and that the suspect had also entered a compound on the premises. The matter remains under investigation.
Breach of Court Order:
Just after 11:00 PM Tuesday night, members conducted a curfew check for a 16 year old youth at his residence. He is the subject of a Recognizance Order with an included 24 hour curfew and it was discovered that he was not at home. Approximately an hour later the youth called the station to report that he was now home, so Members re-attended and arrested him for failing to comply with his Recognizance Order. He was lodged at Brandon Correctional Center and is to appear in Court today.
On Tuesday morning, a 15 year old female was lodged at Brandon Correctional Center after her care providers reported that she was out-of-control in the residence and would not calm down. As she was posing a danger to herself and others, she was held for a period of time and later released back into the care of her guardians.
While on patrol in the area of the 1100 block 3rd Street this morning at about 2:50 AM, a member discovered two dumpsters with their contents on fire. BFES attended and extinguished the fires, which are suspicious in nature. The matter remains under investigation.
