  • Print

A 19-year-old man suspected of pulling off the armed robbery of a restaurant Wednesday night in Winnipeg couldn't evade a manhunt by city police, including the helicopter unit.

The restaurant, located in the 1400 block of Main Street, was robbed by an armed man who was concealing his identity around 11 p.m.

Police swooped in, with general patrol officers, the canine unit and the AIR1 helicopter, and a suspect was arrested near Salter Street and Cathedral Avenue.

Clarence Dean Huntinghawk has been charged with several offences and is being detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.

Winnipeg police shut down a marijuana grow operation at a home in the 600 block of Aberdeen Avenue on Wednesday and arrested three people on a long list of drug charges.

Police seized 487 marijuana plants, with an estimated street value of $545,440, along with about two kilograms of dry marijuana valued at about $10,000 and grow operation equipment valued at $5,000.

A 48-year-old woman and two men, aged 48 and 20, all of Winnipeg, face charges and were released on promises to appear in court.
