Three people face a long list of charges after Gimli RCMP located tens of thousands of dollars worth of stolen property.
On Wednesday, Gimli RCMP, Selkirk RCMP, and the Manitoba East District Criminal Response Enforcement Support Team executed a search warrant on a rural property in the RM of Gimli as part of an ongoing investigation.
During the search, officers were able to recover thousands of dollars worth of stolen property, including vehicles, generators and commercial tools. RCMP also seized a carbine-style firearm with several rounds of ammunition. Police also found a small amount of methamphetamine within the house.
RCMP say the stolen items were from various locations across the province, from as far away as Steinbach.
“The Manitoba RCMP understands that property crime affects 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.
Two males, aged 27 and 63, and a 42-year-old female were located at the scene and arrested.
They face numerous criminal charges, including several charges of Possession of Stolen Property, Possession of a Controlled Substance x2, and numerous firearms-related charges.
The RCMP is working on getting the property returned to the rightful owners.
The investigation continues.
