Four arrested after car theft, break-in

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 Thursday 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. 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.


Back in business at the ELA

SCIENCE begins anew at the Experimental Lakes Area Monday as researchers return to the site following the ELA's near-death experience.

The International Institute for Sustainable Development says monitoring and experiments will begin again on lakes where the effects of phosphorus have been studied for years as well as lakes where researchers are testing the effects of nanosilvers, antibacterial particles found in many electronic appliances and other consumer and commercial products.

Last month, after the federal government cut funding to the 58 lakes near Kenora, the IISD took over operation of the lakes and hired several new and former researchers to work there.

The IISD is now working on funding for students to spend the summer at the ELA.
