Man arrested in connection with string of break-ins going back nine years

  • Print

Winnipeg police have made an arrest following a series of break-ins dating back to 2005.

The investigation goes back to July 5, 2005, when a business located in the 100 block of Market Avenue was broken into. Electronics (including a laptop computer) valued at $3,000 were stolen.

On May 11, 2006, the business on Market was broken into again. Another business on the same block was also broken into that night, and a variety of items were stolen. Later that month, a café in the 100 block of Provencher Boulevard was broken into, and a small amount of cash was stolen.

On Mar. 11, 2011, a male suspect walked into a business in the 1100 block of Henderson Highway and asked to use the bathroom. The suspect then entered the office and stole cash, cheques and a wallet containing credit cards. He was observed by employees leaving the business through the back door with a computer.

A few days later (Mar. 19, 2011), a church on in the 200 block of Hespeler Avenue was vandalized. It’s believed the suspect was involved in that incident, as well.

On Wednesday, following a lengthy investigation, police attended a residence located in the 800 block of Main Street and arrested a 45-year-old man. He is facing various break and enter charges.

The man was released on a promise to appear.
