Police sink their teeth into solving old crime

  • Print

Winnipeg police took a bite out of crime earlier this week.

Officers made an arrest Wednesday following an investigation into a convenience store robbery that took place over six years ago. On Oct. 15, 2007, a female suspect knocked off a convenience store in the 800 block of Arlington Street, confronting employees with a knife.

The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, but left police something under their pillow.

While leaving the store, the woman dropped her partial plate of false teeth. Investigators seized the mouthpiece, chewed on the evidence for a while and recently, a DNA match was made.

The woman was identified and is facing a robbery charge.
