  • Print

Three unlocked vehicles in north Winnipeg were stolen on Jan. 19, resulting in a chase in East Kildonan.

At 8:30 a.m. that day, an unlocked Honda CR-V was stolen from Drobot Place in North Kildonan. At 6:30 p.m., a Lexus ES350 that had been left unlocked and running was stolen from Ingersoll Street in the West End, and at 10:40 p.m., a Pontiac G5 that was unlocked and left running was stolen from Moncton Avenue in East Kildonan.

Shortly after the third incident, Winnipeg police spotted the Pontiac and the Lexus being driven erratically in the area of Raleigh Street and Kimberly Avenue. As both vehicles attempted to flee, the Pontiac hit a snowbank near Kimberly and Golspie Street, and the Lexus hit a parked vehicle near Golspie and Hazel Dell Avenue.

The suspects attempted to flee the area on foot, but members of the patrol unit and Canine Unit arrested them. Members of the Stolen Auto Unit continued the investigation, and have arrested an 18-year-old male, a 15-year-old male, two 14-year-old males, and a 13-year-old male. All are facing numerous theft and property-related charges. One suspect remains at large.

The Honda CR-V has not been recovered, Cst. Jason Michalyshen noted in an email on Jan. 21.
