Winnipeg man accused of 28 break-ins in 17 days
Police have charged a Winnipeg man with a whopping 28 break and enters to convenience stores, clothing stores, food stores, medical clinics, a gas station and a restaurant.
The break-ins – all in the William Whyte and Dufferin areas – took place between Nov. 24 and Sunday, when the suspect was arrested.
Police said the suspect would force his way into the businesses, then steal food, merchandise and/or cash before fleeing the scene.
Around 5 a.m. Sunday, police responded to a break-in at a Dufferin Avenue convenience store and caught a man pushing a shopping cart inside near Flora Avenue and Aikins Street.
The cabinet had been taken from the convenience store.
The man resisted arrest and gave police a fake name before being taken into custody.
Robert Shawn Nault, 46, faces 28 counts of breaking and entering and a charge of resisting a peace officer.
