Winnipeg police have tracked down two people they say are responsible for stealing narcotics from a parked ambulance at St. Boniface Hospital last month.

Six vials of narcotics, including fentanyl and midazolam, were taken from an ambulance in the early morning hours of November 27.

Investigators located the suspects at around midnight Thursday in the area of Kennedy Street and Ellice Avenue. Two vials of fentanyl, believed to have been stolen from the ambulance, were recovered as well as a small amount of methamphetamine.


Christopher Lee Tonn, 36, of Winnipeg, and Gary William Dutka, 44, of Winnipeg, have been charged with possession of a scheduled substance for the purpose of trafficking, as well as property obtained by crime under $5,000.

Both men remain in custody.
