RCMP recently recovered a large amount of stolen property from a property located in the Rural Municipality of Gimli. The stolen items were determined to be from various locations across southern Manitoba, including some from as far away as Steinbach.
Gimli RCMP, along with Selkirk RCMP and the Manitoba East District Criminal Response Enforcement Support Team, recently executed a search warrant on a rural property in the RM of Gimli as part of an ongoing investigation.
During the search, officers recovered tens of thousands of dollars worth of stolen property, including motor vehicles, generators and commercial tools. Also seized was a carbine-style firearm with several rounds of ammunition and a small amount of methamphetamine.
RCMP report that two males, ages 27 and 63, along with a 42-year-old female, were located on scene and placed under arrest. The arrested are facing numerous criminal charges, including possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance and multiple firearms-related charges.
“The Manitoba RCMP understands that property crime effects all communities and continues to take steps to combat these types of criminal offences in rural Manitoba,” said Superintendent John Duff, RCMP East District Commander. Duff noted that they are working on getting the property returned to the rightful owners.
