Portage la Prairie RCMP has pressed charges against two Long Plain First Nation youth.

Just before 1:00 am on May 2, Portage la Prairie RCMP received a report that a business in the 500 block of Saskatchewan Avenue West had been broken into.

Officers arrived on the scene, located and arrested one youth, while another youth fled the area.

Police were able to confirm the identity of the second youth involved, who later turned himself in.

Both youths from Long Plain First Nation face charges of Breaking and Entering and Theft Under $5000.

Both were released to appear in court at a later date with imposed conditions.
