A 28-year-old Winnipeg man is facing a long list of charges in connection to the theft of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority's Street Connections outreach vehicle. 

At around 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oakbank RCMP responded to a report of an unknown man trying to break into a vacant home in the RM of Springfield. The suspect fled before police arrived in a vehicle he had stolen out of Winnipeg. 

Officers began patrolling the area and were led to the RM of St. Clements, where they found the vehicle in a driveway. Officers blocked it in, but the suspect attempted to flee and rammed two police vehicles before getting stuck in the snow. 

The suspect continued to ignore police commands and tried over and over again to flee. Officers eventually broke the vehicle's window and removed the suspect. 

He was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia and a small quantity of suspected methamphetamine. A search of the vehicle resulted in the recovery of a significant amount of stolen property, including purses, wallets and power tools. 

As RCMP investigated further, they discovered the suspect was also responsible for several other break-ins and thefts in the area. 

The 28-year-old Winnipeg man now faces a long list of charges, including assault on peace officer with a weapon, breaking and entering with intent x2 and possession of property obtained by crime over $5000.

He remains in custody.
