Killarney RCMP used timely information from public that lead to the arrest of a man from Brandon following incidents in Cartwright.

On Friday, March 9, at 2:35 am, officers received a report of an abandoned vehicle parked in front of a residence in Cartwright. The owner of the residence reported a suspicious male walking around his property with a shovel.

Officers discovered that the vehicle was stuck in the snow by the residence and the suspicious male was no longer on scene. The driver associated to this abandoned vehicle was known to police as he was presently on a court imposed curfew. Officers began to patrol the area in an attempt to locate this suspicious person.

At 4:35 am another suspicious vehicle was seen pulling into a property with a male quickly exiting the vehicle and running away on foot. This vehicle was later reported stolen. The suspect was able to elude police by stealing another vehicle.

Later that morning, police received a complaint of a break and enter to a business located on Bowles Street in Cartwright. A suspect pried his way into the building and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Officers then received another call reporting a suspicious person walking along Highway 5 that may be related to these incidents. A patrol of the area located the male who was associated with the vehicle stuck earlier in the night. He was arrested without incident for breaching his curfew and charged with the numerous thefts that occurred overnight.

Police have charged 29-year-old Corey James Pashe, from Brandon, with numerous theft related offences and have remanded him into custody with a court appearance scheduled for Tuesday in Brandon Provincial Court.

“The public was extremely quick in reporting crimes in progress and providing the information to our officers” said Sgt. Paul Manaigre of the Manitoba RCMP. “Based on these tips from the public, our officers were able to respond quickly and locate the accused responsible for these crimes.”

Killarney RCMP continue to investigate.
