The following is the Winkler Police Service Weekly Report for the period of February 6 to 1, 2017, as submitted by the department.

Our police service recorded 51 files for the week.  The following are some of those files.

February 6th:    After taking a complaint of “Uttering Threats”, officers assisted in mediating a situation between two tenants who were at odds after one tenant lodged a noise complaint against the other.  In the end, an understanding was gained by both, with one receiving a verbal warning for an implied threat.

February 6th:    Several shoplifting incidents are under investigation after a complaint was received from Wal-Mart. The incidents date back to January of 2017.

February 6th:    Officers were called by a tenant of a residence stating he was having a disagreement with the landlord.  Both parties were interviewed and seemed to have a difference in the understanding of their rights and obligations under the Landlord and Tenancies Act. Officers confirmed that the tenants were in the residence past the lease and that the tenants were packing and planning to leave the following day.  The landlord agreed to allow a two extension to move out and clean the premise.

February 8th:     An investigation is underway after our office received a shoplifting complaint from the Loss Prevention Unit at the SuperStore.  Surveillance footage was provided as part of the complaint package.

February 10th:    While checking vehicles parked on the Winkler Library Parking Lot shortly before 10:00 p.m., officers encountered a 15 year old male who was intoxicated by alcohol.  The male was arrested and taken to the Winkler Police Office to ascertain and confirm his identity. He was subsequently charged under the Liquor and Gaming Control Act for underage consumption of alcohol and turned over to his legal guardian.

In addition to the above this week, officers mediated two other dispute situations, took two other theft complaints and issued four traffic tickets.
