Canadian Armed Forces property stolen in Saskatchewan moat: RCMP

The Saskatchewan RCMP is looking for property left behind by the Canadian Armed Forces last month.

On April 12, a military transport vehicle rolled over on Highway 1 in Summerberry due to snowstorms, according to a police release.

“They rolled one of their vehicles into the area that day,” Indian head RCMP Sgt. Ryan Case said on Monday.

“We had it that our last snowfall happened when the highways were all closed and people were no longer the type of house ().”

However, when the recovery battalion arrived from Shiloh, Man, on 15 April, Case said that only one tire remained.

“He left them there with the hope of coming in a day or two and later reached there and they left,” he said.

“I don’t have a file of this type of nature that they might have stolen something like this (was stolen) but I think it could happen to anyone.”

Case said the tires are worth about $ 5,000 and are quite recognizable.

“They are about three and a half feet long … they are big tires,” he said.

“The rims are uniquely army green, like the ones we portray as army vehicles that we see moving up and down the road. So I would say that this color is definitely distinctive and with their size, they are definitely not John Deere green. It is more of a military green.

“They were not marked in any other way, because they were simply together again on the road, uniquely military green.”

Although it is unknown who the tires were for, Case said it was likely some attempt.

“It is very difficult to take from the side of the road. There would have been some effort to get those tires out of the ditch and load it, where there would certainly not be a single person’s job, ”he said.

“Depending on whatever their intentions were with these things, they would definitely need to return them to the rightful owner at some point in the event where we find out where those things are.”

RCMP stated that the six tires are Michelin XML size 395/85 / R20 and are for light armored vehicles. He stated that there should be a stamp of NSN 2530-20-007-1475 outside the rim.

Anyone is asked to contact the Indian Head RCMP at 306-695-5200.

Summerberry is about 100 km east of Regina.
