Winnipeg, January 18, 2024 - In the late hours of January 16, around 11:00 p.m., the Winnipeg Police Service responded to a distress call from a business located in the 3600 block of Portage Avenue, reporting a Commercial Break & Enter incident.


Upon receiving the call, officers arrived at the scene quickly to assess the situation. Their arrival revealed a disconcerting scene, with the targeted business bearing signs of significant damage, notably a smashed overhead door. However, the officers found no immediate trace of the perpetrators behind this act.


Before long, another distressing call echoed nearby, reporting yet another Commercial Break & Enter, this time involving the theft of a vehicle. In this instance, the stolen vehicle had been forcefully driven through an overhead door.


With the situation escalating, the police intensified their efforts. At approximately 3:05 a.m., vigilant patrolling officers came across the previously stolen vehicle in the 200 block of Talbot Avenue. Officers managed to safely intercept the vehicle, culminating in the apprehension of two occupants.


However, the investigation was far from over. Members of the Major Crimes Unit took charge of the ongoing inquiry, determined to bring the responsible parties to justice.


Subsequently, 22-year-old Devin Dakota Kasper, a resident of Winnipeg, found himself facing a slew of charges in connection with these incidents:


  • Break & Enter with Intent

  • Break & Enter Commit Theft

  • Mischief Over $5000

  • Operation of a Conveyance While Prohibited

  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000

In light of the serious charges laid against him, Kasper, was detained in custody.
