Stolen Vehicle/Drug Offence – Arrest: C19-190207

On August 14, 2019, at approximately 1:00 p.m., an East District General Patrol unit was in the area of Raleigh Street and Chalmers Avenue when they observed a stolen vehicle travelling nearby.

As the police unit followed, the stolen vehicle came to an abrupt stop. Officers turned on their emergency lighting at which time the stolen vehicle drove up on a curb and fled at a high rate of speed.

Officers did not pursue; however, the stolen vehicle continued to drive dangerously and began to ignore stop signs in the area. At the intersection of Chalmers Avenue and Watt Street, the stolen vehicle struck an SUV containing a couple with their 5-year-old daughter.

The driver of the stolen vehicle fled on foot and officers, who had seen the collision from a distance, engaged in a foot chase and apprehended the male in the 400 block of Harbison Avenue West.

The occupants of the SUV were checked by members of the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service but did not require medical attention.

A search of the stolen vehicle resulted in the seizure of a large knife and a .6 gram bag of methamphetamine.

The suspect was treated at a hospital for injuries from the collision and was medically cleared soon after.

Brendan James Neufeld, a 20-year-old male of Winnipeg, has been charged with:

- Dangerous Operation of a Conveyance
- Flight While Pursued by Peace Officer
- Possession of a Weapon
- Possession of Scheduled Substance – Methamphetamine
- Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000
- Fail to Comply with Probation Order

He was detained in custody.
