Car Thief  Disguised in a Wig

WINNIPEG - A vehicle that was left running, was stolen from a restaurant on Main Street by a man disguised in a wig, hat and sunglasses.

Police found the vehicle a short time later parked at a home on Lansdowne Avenue and tried to arrest the man. He became aggressive and after a brief struggle the officer deployed his Taser which was ineffective.

The suspect then removed his upper clothing and was Tasered a second time, but again it didn't slow him down. He ran into the home and tried to hide but was taken into custody after a brief struggle.

39 year-old Marvin Jure Maric has been charged with:

- Resist Peace Officer

- Operation of a Conveyance While Prohibited

- Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000

He was also processed on an outstanding arrest warrant for:

- Fail to Comply with Probation Order

Maric was held in custody.
