WINNIPEG, MB. – A 42 -year-old woman who lied to police has now been charged in in relation to several break and enters and thefts, said Morris RCMP.

On Sunday, January 14, officers from the Morris RCMP responded to a call of a suspicious person walking down a back lane who was carrying a wide variety of items.

Police executed a search warrant at a home on McMillan Street in Morris. The results of the search warrant provided evidence on several unsolved break and enters in the area.
