A 42-year-old woman from Winnipeg faces charges of Theft Under $5000 after allegedly filling several packs full of items before taking off in a vehicle.

Portage la Prairie RCMP were called just after noon on September 6th to a business in the 700 block of Saskatchewan Avenue East. Information was given to neighbouring police detachments and the vehicle was spotted in Headingley. Officers pulled the vehicle over and the woman was arrested. She also had an outstanding warrant from another police force.

She was released to appear in court at a later date.
