Winnipeg police arrest two men accused of stealing vehicle

Winnipeg police have arrested two men accused of stealing a vehicle and using it to crash into parked cars in the city’s southeast early Friday morning.

Officers were called around 2:30 a.m. Friday about a vehicle driving erratically, hitting several parked cars. Police found the stolen vehicle ditched in the intersection of De La Seigneurie Boulevard and Bishop Grandin Boulevard. Police believe two suspects then fled in a taxi, police said Saturday.

At about 3 a.m., officers spotted a cab returning to the intersection and pulled it over. Police seized the stolen vehicle’s keys and a can of bear pepper spray when they arrested the two passengers.

Major crimes investigators determined the vehicle was stolen from a business on the 2400 block of Pembina Highway.

Two 20-year-old men from Winnipeg face a raft of charges, including one count each of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and two counts each of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000. One faces a weapon possession charge, while both are accused of violating court or probation conditions.

Bombers fall to Ticats 48-31

HAMILTON — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers got a taste of their own medicine, with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats serving up the kind of dominating performance that the Blue and Gold have become accustomed to over the past few years.

The Bombers fall to 12-2 with the loss, while the Tiger-Cats improve to 4-9.

The Tiger-Cats collected points on their first five drives, including three touchdowns and a pair of field goals, while also adding a defensive score off a fumble recovery to take a 34-14 lead at halftime.

The Bombers attempted the comeback in the fourth, scoring a pair of touchdowns to cut the Hamilton lead to 41-3. But the Tiger-Cats pulled away late with a touchdown and interception that sealed the win.
