Winnipeg, February 20, 2024 - The Winnipeg Police Service's Property Crime Unit has concluded a comprehensive investigation spanning from October 2023 to February 2024, uncovering a series of break-ins in the South Pembina area. These incidents resulted in the loss of over $15,000 worth of property.

Numerous residential garages and vehicles fell victim to the spree, with eight vehicles stolen and subsequently recovered. Additionally, two attempted thefts were thwarted, resulting in defeated ignitions. Among the items stolen were tools, cash, and clothing.

One particularly alarming aspect of the investigation involved a string of break-ins at an apartment complex on Dalhousie Drive, where over one hundred tenant mailboxes were targeted on nine separate occasions. Stolen mail containing credit cards and cheques prompted repeated repairs, at a cost of approximately $80,000.

The incidents occurred across various locations in the South Pembina area, including Dalhousie Drive, Allendale Drive, Briarcliff Bay South, Briarlynn Road, Pembina Highway, Baylor Avenue, Craigmohr Drive, Dedrick Bay, and McKellar Drive.

On February 15, a significant breakthrough was made when the Property Crime Unit, assisted by TST, members of the West District, and the K9 and Drone Unit, executed a warrant at a residence in the first one hundred block of Newdale Avenue. A 23-year-old female, identified as Kineisha Jawbone of Winnipeg, was taken into custody. Subsequent searches uncovered more stolen property linked to additional break-enter and theft reports.

Jawbone now faces a staggering 69 charges related to break-enter and theft offences and has been detained in custody pending further legal proceedings.
