Maples Restaurant Target of Three Break-Ins

Winnipeg Police CrestA Maples restaurant has been the target of three separate break-ins in recent months.

Johnny’s Maples Pizza & Restaurant at 670 Sheppard Street was broken into July 9, July 10 and October 12.

In the first incident, thieves smashed a front window, but didn’t steal anything. The next day, the restaurant was hit again when thieves smashed a second window. They made off with a cash register containing cash and liquor. The suspect was spotted leaving an older model white pickup truck.

Then earlier this month, another window was smashed, where a quantity of liquor was stolen again.

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-2848 or CrimeStoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
