Winnipeg Police Service Media Release
For Immediate Release

Fraud - Arrest: R13-24967

On October 17, 2017 approximately 9:20 a.m. members of the Winnipeg Police Financial Crime Unit executed an arrest warrant in the 200 block of Sharp Bvld. A 54-year-old male has been arrested.  

Between January 2004 and June 2011, the accused defrauded the victims of funds in excess of 12 million dollars. Winnipeg Police were first made aware of the incident in 2013 at which time investigators entered into a lengthy investigation.

The investigation revealed that the accused was a Player Agent and business advisor for former NHL players, Christopher Phillips and Dany Heatley. During this time, the victims provided the accused with funds for the purpose of making investments on their behalf. The accused used these funds for personal business, disguising it's true source. In addition, the accused falsely represented proceeds of these funds back to the victims as withdrawals from their investments and provided fraudulent account statements to the victims.

Stacey McAlpine, 54-years-old, of Winnipeg has been charged with the following offences:

  • Fraud Over $5000 X2
  • Laundering Proceeds of Crime
  • Theft Over $5000 X2

Robbery: C170235314

On October 17, 2017 at approximately 8:30 p.m. Winnipeg Police General Patrol, the Tactical Support Team and Air1 responded to the report of shots fired inside a business in the 3000 block of Ness Ave. Upon police arrival, all suspects had fled and units began to search the area.

The investigation learned that three unknown males, all disguised, attended to the business where they robbed a patron of his cell phone while he was standing outside of the business. All three suspects then entered the business where one of the males, armed with a shotgun, ordered everyone to get on the ground and fired one shot into the ceiling of the business. The shooter was overpowered by employees and patrons resulting in a confrontation between several parties. All three suspects fled and the shotgun was held for police.

One male was taken to hospital in stable condition and later released.

This investigation is continuing by members of the Major Crimes Unit. Anyone with information that may assist investigators is asked to call 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
