Like father, like son? 0
Like father like son can be a good thing but not when it involves criminal behaviour.
Morden police made two arrests August 18 for a break-in and theft from Mudeezee Car Wash and a local storage facility.
As a result of their investigation, police were led to arrest a youth from Altona, and the youth then implicated another Morden youth in the storage facility break-in and theft.
The youth was released on a promise to appear along with conditions including barring him from the Town of Morden other than for court appearances.
Meanwhile, the other youth from Morden was arrested and admitted to the break in to the storage facility as well as to being involved in the Mudeezee break and enter. He then also told police his father was a co-accused in the break-in and theft to the car wash, and the 36 year old father was later arrested the same day.
Both father and son are now facing charges of break enter and theft and for breaching previous court ordered conditions. The youth was remanded to the Manitoba Youth Centre and the father was remanded to Provincial Remand Centre.
Dakota Ojibway Child and Family Services are also now involved in the incident as there are younger children in the family.
