St-Pierre-Jolys RCMP are currently looking for a male suspect in connection to a recent theft incident that occurred in the Rural Municipality of Hanover.

On April 13, 2022, at approximately 3:35pm, St-Pierre-Jolys RCMP responded to a report of a theft in progress near the intersection of Highway 59 and Highway 52 in the RM of Hanover. Police say that a catalytic converter from a parked vehicle was being stolen by a male suspect.

RCMP subsequently received a report stating that the suspect returned to his vehicle and fled the scene with the caller following. The information was relayed to officers from St-Pierre-Jolys and Steinbach RCMP who then responded to the area in an attempt to locate the vehicle.

The suspect vehicle was captured on camera and appears to be an older model, grey coloured Honda CRV with a black coloured front passenger door.
