Brandon police said that they'd enjoyed a relatively quiet 24 hours from Wednesday morning through Thursday morning.
In that time, they made just four arrests — that was two who were wanted on the strength of previous warrants and two more who were taken to the drunk tank.
Wednesday afternoon, police went to a home in the 400-block of Seventh Street, looking for a 25-year-old man who was wanted for assault, assault with a weapon, uttering threats and for possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. That same man was also wanted by Winnipeg police for failing to attend court.
He was found and arrested without incident. Police say he was held overnight at the Brandon jail, and was to appear in court on Thursday.
Then, a 21-year-old man was arrested at his Brandon home on behalf of the Dauphin RCMP. They wanted him for four counts of failing to comply with his probation. He, too, was arrested and held overnight in jail, to appear in Brandon court on Thursday.
Local officers also picked up two people who were drunk in public.
The first was an 18-year-old woman who was spotted wandering in and out of traffic in the 1000-block of Middleton Avenue during the noon hour on Wednesday. She was found highly intoxicated, police say, and no one could be found to care for her. She was held in jail to sober up.
Then, about 9 p.m. on Wednesday evening, police found a 54-year-old man who was passed out in the zero-hundred block of Ninth Street. He was also highly intoxicated, and with nowhere to go, police gave him a place to stay at the Brandon Correctional Centre.
