Vehicle in ditch

On December 13, 2022, at approximately 7:00 am, Morden RCMP responded to a vehicle collision on Road 36 West, just north of Highway 3, in the RM of Stanley.

Initial investigation has determined that when the vehicle went off the road and into the ditch, a couple people passing by stopped to assist the driver. The two witnesses noticed that the vehicle appeared to be stolen as it didn't have licence plates and the dashboard was damaged. Police were called.

When officers arrived on scene, they spoke to the driver, who was found to have two outstanding warrants, one from Saskatchewan and one from Ontario. He was arrested and further investigation was completed.

The vehicle was checked and it had been stolen from Winnipeg overnight.

James Jennings, 45, of Winnipeg has been charged with Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Failing to Comply x2. He was remanded into custody.

Morden RCMP continue to investigate.
