WINNIPEG — A man believed to be high on methamphetamine threw a barbeque propane tank through a window of a police cruiser on Wednesday.

Officers were in the 300 block of Redwood Avenue on an unrelated matter at around 11:15 a.m. An officer was seated in the front passenger seat when a man approached from behind and threw the full-sized tank into the rear window of the cruiser.
