Meth found after stolen scooter bust in Winnipeg
A Winnipeg man is facing charges after police busted him with 14 grams of methamphetamine on a stolen scooter.
Patrol officers pulled over the vehicle on Wednesday after observing it speeding through an area near Selkirk Ave.
Officers ran a check on the scooter’s licence plate, which showed the vehicle belonged to a utility trailer. The scooter’s ignition was also damaged.
After placing 43-year-old William Markowski under arrest, police discovered the meth, which has an approximate street value of $1,750, and $325 cash on the scooter.
They believe it was stolen between June 26 and June 27 from a residence in the Riverview neighbourhood.
Markowski is now facing three charges, including possession of a scheduled substance for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of property obtained by crime.
He was detained in custody.
