Winnipeg Crime Statistics November 15, 2017

So far in 2017 crime in Winnipeg is slightly down from 2016. However, there is still 6 weeks to go.

The Winnipeg police seem to have gotten control of the gangs in the city, they are not killing each other like they did in past years. There was a big gang bust just this week.

Drunken party knife homicides are way down. Maybe the revelers in the North and West Ends are wearing Kevlar vests when they crack open the 24’s of brew. Shootings are way up. It has went from street brawling with fists, to pulling out big knives, to now pulling out a snub nose 44 to settle disputes.

Relatively good year.

Canada will be legalizing Cannabis next July. This should make a major impact on the underground black market drug trade. Less money for the gangs.

The police will have to keep a strong presence on the streets.

80-year-old Villager in safe place as Hurricane Irma makes arrival in Florida

The Villages, Florida is located 60 miles northwest of Orlando.

A 80-year-old Villager is lodged in a safe place as Hurricane Irma makes her arrival in Florida.

Richard Neil Hendricks was arrested Wednesday on a warrant charging him with failure to appear on a charge of grand theft.

He is being held without bond at the Lake County Jail.

Hendricks has spent the summer trying to stay one step ahead of the law.

In July, he was arrested on a warrant at a Burger King in Daytona Beach. Later that same month he was arrested after paying an unwanted visit in his golf cart to the Waterfront Inn at Lake Sumter Landing.

Thieves Steal ATM With Forklift in Daring Arkansas Heist

It’s a lot harder to “take the money and run” when the cash you want is trapped inside an ATM. But some daring thieves in Arkansas recently used a forklift in their effort to do just that.

The thieves crashed an enormous CAT forklift into the drive-thru portion of a bank on Wednesday, August 16th, and made away with an ATM. And police now believe that these criminals might have some ties to the construction industry. I wonder what gave them that idea.

The thieves hit the First Service Bank in Conway, Arkansas around 3:30am local time on Wednesday morning. The Conway Police Department posted the video to Facebook, captured from the bank’s CCTV cameras, and are asking the public for help in identifying the perpetrators. You can’t clearly see any people in the video, so they’re asking people to help identify the forklift.

Even if you make off with an ATM, it can be incredibly hard to crack them open. But given the brute force already demonstrated by these criminals, something tells me they’re going to try and find a way with something big and menacing.

But a warning for anyone who thinks this might be a good idea for them: More and more ATMs have GPS tracking. So even if you make away with the machine, you might have the police on your tail a lot sooner than you’d like.

If you have any information about the theft, the Conway Police are asking the public to call 501-450-6130.
