N.K. men suspected in break-ins

  • Print

The internet helped lead investigators to two North Kildonan residents accused of selling stolen goods.


Two male suspects, aged 20 and 15 years old, were arrested on June 19. After one suspect was arrested around 5 p.m., police obtained a search warrant for his residence near Gilmore Avenue and Henderson Highway.

Around 9 p.m. that night, a second suspect was arrested. The suspect is also accused of a break-and-enter in the 300 block of Jefferson Avenue on July 23, 2012.

The arrests came after the District 3 Crimes Unit investigated a break-in at a shop in the 2300 block of McPhillips Street on June 15, where a large quantity of electronics was taken. Several of the items stolen were recovered, according to a release issued by the Winnipeg Police Service. Several items were also listed for sale online.

The 20-year-old was charged with possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000. The 15-year-old was charged with possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, as well as break and enter.

Both suspects were released on a promise to appear.
