Winnipeg Police CrestA Winnipeg man has been charged after police say he broke into an underground parking garage and damaged several vehicles.

Police were called to the 1st 100 block of Arden Avenue on Monday at around 1 a.m. for a report of a break-in.

The suspect allegedly broke into the apartment block’s parkade and damaged the windows of 12 vehicles, stealing property from two of them.

The building’s caretaker and another person were able to hold the suspect down for police.
