August 2nd Media Release

For the last 24 hours:

Shoplifter:

At around 10:25 AM Sunday morning, an employee from Superstore reported that a male suspect had just stolen approximately $100 of meat from the store.  An officer on patrol spotted a male matching the description of the suspect, in the 200 block 10th Street and detained him.  Subsequently, the 30 year-old male was found to have the stolen product in his backpack and he was arrested for theft under $5000.  He was later released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on September 13th.

 

Breach of Probation:

Repeated reports were received from Superstore of a male, well known to both staff there and Police, being on their property despite being prohibited from attending.  The 27 year-old male was located on the store property and was arrested for failing to comply with a probation Order.  He was later released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on September 27th.

 

Flight from Police:

On July 20th, Police attempted to stop a moped / scooter that had been reported earlier for “ripping around” a south end parking lot.  The suspect was seen in the area of 1200 Hill Avenue and a stop was attempted; however, the suspect fled.  At the time of the incident, the license plate had been bent up to hide it.  Subsequent investigation revealed that an 18 year-old male had been the operator.  He was contacted and attended to the Police station on Sunday afternoon, where he was arrested for the criminal offence of flight from police, and issued tickets under the Highway Traffic Act.  He was released to appear in court on September 30th.

 

Drug Trafficking Charges:

Just before 2:00 AM this morning, a vehicle stop was conducted in the 2500 block Victoria Avenue.  A small quantity of cocaine was located in the vehicle.  As a result of the investigation, a 36 year-old male and a 25 year-old male, both from Brandon, were arrested for possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.  They were released from custody on appropriate police imposed conditions and are to appear in court on October 14th.  Additionally, the 36 year-old male was charged with theft under $5000 relating to him stealing a shop tool from Canadian Tire on June 30th.  He is to appear in court on October 18th on that charge.

Several other arrests related to intoxication which resulted in no charges but the subjects being held until sober.
