Suspect charged with theft of tools, refusing to pay for cab ride


On May 9, 2023, police received a report of the theft of power tools from a retail business in the 800 block of 1st street N.  Security footage from the business assisted police in identifying the 30-year-old female, and a warrant for her arrest for Theft Under $5000 was requested.

On May 25, 2023 at approximately 9:30 pm, police responded to a report of a female who failed to pay her taxi fair in the 100 block of 16th street.  Investigation revealed that the female went inside a residence and refused to pay.  The suspect provided police with a false name upon her arrest, but police soon learned who she was including the fact that she was wanted for the theft of the power tools.

She was lodged at Brandon Police Service and will appear in court today on charges of Fraudulently Obtain Transportation, Theft Under $5000 and Public Mischief.
