Liquor-related arrests keep cops busy

Brandon police made a series of liquor-related arrests on Thursday and early Friday.

They said Friday morning that in the previous 24 hours, they had taken at least five people to the drunk tank, and arrested two suspected shoplifters.

The daily litany of petty crimes began at about 10 a.m. on Thursday, when officers found a highly intoxicated man sitting in the front lobby of a business on the 200-block of 10th Street. The 33-year-old was taken to sober up.

Another man, 46, was reported passed-out drunk on the 200-block of 25th Street around 12:30 p.m. on Thursday. With no place to go, police gave him a room at the jailhouse until he sobered up.

Then, at about 5:20 p.m., a 36-year-old man was also taken into custody for his own safety, police say, after he showed up at the hospital so drunk he couldn’t be medically assessed.

At some point during the day, police also had to deal with a 14-year-old Souris girl who showed up intoxicated at a Brandon group home. She was taken to sober up, and was at first going to be released Friday morning with a ticket for underage drinking. However, officers also found that she was breaching a court order, and they were going to hold her a while longer until that’s sorted out.

Finally, a 25-year-old man was hauled to the drunk tank around 5 a.m. on Friday. He had been causing some kind of a disturbance outside a home on the 400-block of 25th Street. Police had also removed him from a different home nearby earlier in the night after he caused some problems there. This time, they kept him.

The two suspected shoplifters were both female. One, a 50-year-old woman, was arrested by police after employees of a store on the 900-block of Victoria Avenue apparently caught her stealing about $36 worth of merchandise. She has a court date of Oct. 20.

A 27-year-old woman was also arrested after security spotted her stealing about $100 worth of product from a store in the Brandon Shoppers Mall. She, too, was turned over to police, and has a court date of Oct. 9.
