Winnipeg police travelled outside their jurisdiction to make an arrest in connection with a homicide last month.
According to a news release from the Winnipeg Police Service, officers flew to Toronto on Thursday where they arrested and charged 53-year-old Neigel Ryan Noel with three different offences in the murder of Scott Matthew Catcheway, 39, in Winnipeg.
