Homicide – Arrests: C17-161171   
Winnipeg Police homicide investigators have arrested 2 males for the murder of Trevor Bodnarek, 27. Bodnarek was shot on July 21, 2017, while in the 700 block of Selkirk Ave. and died of his injuries.
   
 - Craig Dylan MONKMAN, 19
 - Albert Kelly THOMAS, 34
   
Have both been charged with 2nd Degree Murder and detained in custody.
   
Fatal Motor Vehicle Collision – Public Assistance Requested: C17-107916   
As previously released:
   
On May 21, 2017, at approximately 3:15 a.m., emergency personnel responded to a report of a male down in the roadway in the 300 block of Cumberland Avenue. A 30-year-old male was transported to hospital in critical condition, but later succumbed to his injuries.
   
The investigation has revealed that the victim was walking in the area and was struck by a motor vehicle. The vehicle had been travelling eastbound on Cumberland Avenue when it struck the victim. The vehicle fled the scene without assisting the injured male. The suspect vehicle is described as being grey or silver in colour and would have sustained front-end damage.
   
Further investigation has now determined that the victim was struck by the front passenger-side bumper of a vehicle, causing damage to the underside. This damage would not be readily visible without closer examination.
   
A physical check by investigators of all known grey coloured 2003-2005 Honda Accords within the greater Winnipeg area has met with negative results.
   
The Winnipeg Police Service is asking members of the auto industry, particularly those who deal with used parts and/or autobody repair shops, for their assistance in potentially identifying the involved vehicle.
   
Anyone in the automotive industry that either sold or changed a grey/silver-coloured front bumper for a 2003-2005 Honda Accord shortly after May 21, 2017, or anyone that has information that may assist investigators, is asked to contact the Central Traffic Unit at 204-986-6271 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).

The suspect male driver fled on foot; however he was tracked by members of the K9 unit and placed under arrest between two buildings in the 500 block of William Avenue.

Reminder – Fraud Warning – Home Furnace Inspection Scam
 
The Winnipeg Police Services continues to receive numerous complaints from homeowners concerning aggressive and potentially fraudulent sales practices for home heating systems.
 
A common theme is that a salesperson or salespeople will approach residences and may be carrying uniforms with corporate logos and/or business identification. These individuals will then state they are performing furnace inspections or wish to check the operating status of the homeowner's heating system. This often results in them attempting to gain access to the residence. 
 
Neither private companies, nor their employees, have any legal authority to enter a home to perform furnace inspections. These individuals are salespeople whose ultimate goal is to entice residents to make purchases of home heating products. 
 
There have been reports of these individuals claiming to be associates or employees with Manitoba Hydro.
 
While Manitoba Hydro staff will go door-to-door for a number of reasons, they carry official Manitoba Hydro identification with their name and photo and will not pressure homeowners to gain entry, even for inspections.
 
More information is available at https://www.hydro.mb.ca/frauds_and_scams.shtml
 
The public is reminded that they can deny entry to any individual that seems suspicious, and are asked to call the police non-emergency number at 204-986-6222 if they require information from the Winnipeg Police Service.

Constable Rob Carver, Public Information Officer
