  • Print

Two women are in custody after a taxi was stolen late Wednesday night.

At approximately 11:20 p.m., the two women got into a cab in the 400 block of Kennedy Street. While en route to a destination near Logan Avenue and Keewatin Street, the passengers got into an argument with the driver and allegedly threatened to physically harm the individual.

The driver exited the cab near the corner of Balmoral Street and Notre Dame Avenue, at which point one of the women allegedly jumped in the driver’s seat and drove off.

Officers located the cab in the area of Alexander Avenue and Ellen Street and tracked it before the vehicle finally came to a stop after colliding with a snow bank on Isabel Street.

Ansley Henderson, 22, and Britney Beardy, 24, were both arrested and are facing charges.

They were detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.
