|Winnipeg Police arrested 33-year-old Dallas Tyler Friesen on Friday with the help of its K9 and tactical units. A member of the public spotted him and contacted police. |
Friesen faces over a dozen charges including firearm offences and counts of possession of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and methamphetamine as well as property obtained by crime. He has been remanded in custody and likely won't be seeing sunshine for a while.
|Dallas Tyler Friesen, 33, has an "extensive history" with police and officers believed he'd be in possession of drugs when they saw him in a taxi and followed it to a home before trying to stop him. Friesen tried to run into a nearby residence. An officer chased him, caught up with him and tried to arrest him as Friesen pulled away.|
The officer was splashed with hot coffee and pushed down a set of stairs.
|As they fought, a loaded firearm and set of handcuffs fell out of a bag that had been around Friesen's neck. He tried to pass the bag to a woman who ran out of the home. That's when police apprehended the woman and Friesen ran away. Inside the purse, police found around $11,500 worth of crack cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl.|
Friesen is known to have ties to gangs. Police warned the public not to approach him. Anyone with information on Friesen that may assist investigators is asked to call 204-986-6222 or 911.
