Students from Assiniboine Community College’s Police Studies program got some unexpected real world experience on Monday after catching a thief in action.
Police received a report of a theft from a business in the 1500 block of 18th Street after the students saw a man stealing a pair of shoes valued at $250.
The witnesses apprehended the suspect and waited for police to attend. The 25-year-old man, who was highly intoxicated, was arrested for theft under $5,000 and lodged at the Brandon Correctional Centre to be released when sober. He is scheduled to attend court in December.
