  • Print

Two youth have been arrested after a house was broken into and a vehicle was stolen in the North End.

Winnipeg police said today they went to a residence in the 300 block of Polson Avenue on Monday shortly after 12 a.m., after receiving a call about a break and enter and a stolen vehicle.

Police spotted the vehicle around Main Street and Inkster Boulevard, but the vehicle sped off at high speed on Inkster to Scotia Street, blowing through stop signs on the way.

Police said the driver wasn’t able to turn left onto Scotia, instead driving through a Transit sign and across a lawn until colliding with another vehicle parked in a driveway.

While the two suspects in the vehicle fled on foot, the officers put out a fire which started in the front end of the stolen vehicle.

Police said their helicopter AIR1 followed the suspects and helped officers find them hiding in a veranda they broke into.

Two boys, aged 12 and 15, have been charged with numerous offences including break and enter into a dwelling house, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and flight from police.

The pair have been released on promises to appear.

The investigation is continuing.
