Police involved in crash

A multi-vehicle crash involving an RCMP vehicle sent two cars into the ditch along Highway 7 Saturday afternoon.

Police stopped their pickup truck on the shoulder of the highway about 1 p.m. to check on a Chevrolet Impala that had driven into the ditch. Shortly after parking, a Pontiac Montana crashed into the back of their truck, forcing other vehicles to swerve around the scene to avoid a collision.

A Chevy Malibu ended up in the ditch, while three others veered around the accident site.

RCMP East District Traffic Service and local EMS responded to the scene. A male driving the Pontiac Montana received minor injuries.

Blowing snow and bad visibility were contributing factors, RCMP say.

Two arrested in stabbing

A man and a teen have been arrested after two women were stabbed and robbed on Boyd Avenue Friday morning.

Two women, aged 46 and 49, were walking along Boyd Avenue around 2:30 a.m. when they were confronted by two males demanding their property, Winnipeg police say. The victims were pushed to the ground and stabbed before being robbed, according to police.

The 49-year-old was sent to hospital in critical condition but has since been upgraded to stable. The 46-year-old sustained non-life threatening injuries.

The two suspects fled on foot but were tracked down by police shortly afterwards.

Both suspects -- aged 24 and 17 -- are in custody and have been charged with a variety of offences, including robbery with a weapon, disguise with intent and possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose.

Suburban grow op busted

WINNIPEG police found over a quarter-million dollars worth of marijuana and a grow operation in a home in River Park South Friday.

Officers executed a search warrant at a residence in the 900 block of Aldgate Road at 10 a.m. Friday and discovered 155 marijuana plants, 60 pounds of dried and packaged pot and $27,000 worth of grow-op equipment, according to a press release.

Police estimate the street value of the plants is $173,000, while the dried weed is worth $150,000.

A 39-year-old woman was arrested and faces a number of charges, including growing marijuana, possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and theft of electricity or gas. She was released on a promise to appear in court.
