A 40-year-old Winnipeg man is facing more than a dozen charges after police linked him to multiple break-ins and property crimes in the Daniel McIntyre area over a three-month period.
The suspect is accused of a range of thefts, usually involving a house or garage being broken into at what police are calling “a seemingly random time of day or night.”
Items stolen in these incidents include tools, bicycles, a pizza oven, a shotgun, electronics and more. In a number of incidents, stolen items were later found being re-sold online or at local pawn shops, police said.
With the help of tips from community members, police identified a suspect and arrested him at a Sargent Avenue apartment building Tuesday after they say he tried to flee from police.
