Wanted man leads police on 4-hour snowmobile chase through southeast Winnipeg

A Winnipeg man on a stolen snowmobile led police on a four-hour chase through the southeastern part of the city Sunday afternoon.

Police said they were called around noon Sunday about a man illegally operating a snowmobile — later determined to be stolen — in a residential St. Norbert neighbourhood.

The suspect, identified as a man who was already the subject of a warrant for firearms-related charges, managed to evade police throughout an “extensive” area, until he was arrested around 3:45 p.m.

The 40-year-old was taken into custody and faces charges of failing to comply with conditions of a release order, three counts of property obtained by crime over $5,000, and fleeing while pursued by a peace officer.
