Portage la Prairie RCMP are currently investigating the recent theft of approximately 60 Apple iPhones that were stolen from a business located on Sissons Drive, in the community.

Earlier in March, Portage la Prairie RCMP received a report of a theft that had occurred at approximately 9:30pm the night before. It was reported to police that three adults, two males and a female, entered the business and made their to the electronics area. The female suspect distracted an employee, as the two male suspects broke into the locked cabinet and stole approximately 60 Apple iPhones. The total value of the theft is estimated at over $70,000.

Police say that the entire incident occurred within minutes and that the theft was not discovered until the following morning.

RCMP believe that this incident is related to three other similar thefts that occurred within the last month in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Brooks, Alberta, and Medicine Hat, Alberta.
