Winnipeg police chased a man on a stolen snowmobile for almost four hours last weekend before eventually taking him into custody.
Police were called to the St. Norbert area at around noon on March 13 for a report of a man driving a snowmobile illegally on residential roadways.
Officers found the vehicle to be stolen and identified the suspect as someone wanted on a warrant related to firearms charges.
Police utilized their own snowmobiles, the K9 unit and Air 1 to locate the suspect, who travelled an extensive way through the city’s southeast area over the next four hours.
Just before 4 p.m., officers located Curtis McGirr, 40, of Winnipeg and took him into custody.
He has been charged with several offences, including three counts of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.
Officers also located three stolen snowmobiles as part of the investigation.
McGirr remains in custody.
