Off-duty cop witnesses robbery

If you’re going to commit a robbery make sure you’re not being watched by police.

That’s what happened on Saturday night when a lone man entered a beer vendor in the 2100 block of Main Street shortly after 10:30 p.m.

Winnipeg police said today the man went up to the lone clerk, pulled out a weapon and demanded and received cash before fleeing on foot. The clerk was not injured.

But police said an off duty officer was watching the robbery and followed the man. The officer was able to tell on duty officers where to pick up the man in the area of Templeton Avenue and Aikins Street.

Milos Maroti, 28, of Winnipeg has been charged with robbery and breach of probation. He has been detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.

Pair in custody following raid

Winnipeg police said today that two men were arrested and charged after officers and the Tactical Support Team executed a search warrant at a residence in the 300 block of Hargrave Street just beofre 11 a.m.

Police found ecstasy and a cutting agent with a street value of $7,100, three grams of cocaine worth $240, 23 grams of marijuana worth $230, and 887.6 grams of "an unknown leafy substance" which will be analyzed to determine what it is.

Two men, aged 26 and 23, have been charged with possessing marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy for the purpose of trafficking.

Both men were detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre. A third man who had been taken into custody at the residence was released with no charges.




A fire in a suite in a high rise apartment building has caused at least $50,000 in damage.

No one was injured, but the building had to be evacuated.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
