  • Print

Four people — two adults and two teens — have been arrested following the theft of a vehicle earlier this week and a shed break-in.

Winnipeg police said today that sometime between Sunday and Monday, a sport utility vehicle was stolen from the area of Edenwood Place. And shortly after 1 a.m. on Wednesday, a shed on Malcana Street was broken into, although nothing was taken.

A short time after the shed break-in, patrolling police saw the vehicle travelling on Roch Avenue. After a short chase, the vehicle was abandoned in the area of Jamison Avenue and Trueman Street.

A police canine unit and the Air1 helicopter were called in, and a 22-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy were later taken into custody. Later in the day, an 18-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl also were arrested.

All four suspects have been charged with one count each of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, possession of break-in instruments, and break and enter with intent.

The 17-year-old is also charged with one count each of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, failing to comply with a disposition, and driving while disqualified.

The 16-year-old and the 22-year-old have been released on a promise to appear, while the 17 year old and the 18 year old remain in custody.
