A 23-year-old man is being held by police and faces multiple charges following a series of break and enters at golf courses in western Manitoba and eastern Saskatchewan last week .
Manitoba RCMP say members of the Killarney Detachment were notified on the afternoon of June 10 of a suspicious vehicle in the community. Police said they attended the scene to speak to the owner, who was not at home. While you were there, you noticed another van blocking the entrance to the residence. Officers took the license plate number and discovered that it had been stolen the previous day from the Rossman Lake Golf and Country Club in Rossburn, Manitoba.
With the assistance of the Western District CREST Unit, the investigation that afternoon led to the arrest of an 18-year-old man from Killarney as well as a 23-year-old man from Deloraine.
The Mounted Police obtained a search warrant for the residence where officers allege they found an unsecured firearm along with numerous stolen items, including alcohol, chainsaws, tools, chargers, batteries, clothing , golf cart keys and cash register keys.
The stolen property has been linked to reports of breaking and entering golf courses located in Deloraine, Cartwright, Rossburn, Russell, Shoal Lake and Rocanville, SK.
Tyson Kowal, 23, of Deloraine, was remanded for numerous charges, including break and enter x 7, possession of stolen property and failure to comply with a release order x 2.
The 18-year-old has been released to appear in court on September 13, 2022 in Killarney where he will appear for possession of stolen property and unauthorized possession of a firearm.
