The missing nickel plates are described as being approximately 20 by 36 inches in size.

A Thompson man is being sought in connection to $110,000 worth of nickel plates stolen on the night of May 13 from Vale’s Manitoba smelting operations in Thompson.

Michael James Schwartz, 30, is described as Caucasian, 5-foot-11 tall and weighing 220 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen in Thompson on June 24 and may be driving a blue 2012 Dodge Charger bearing Manitoba licence plate GPL 487.

Schwartz and his brother own Schwartz Bros Construction Limited on Cree Road in Thompson.

The plea for assistance came in connection to an ongoing investigation of a theft of four bundles of nickel plates. The missing plates are described as being approximately 20 inches by 36 inches in size, nickel in colour, and stamped on both sides with VALE and INCO.

A surveillance photo showed a flatbed truck driving off with the nickel plates.

RCMP say anyone information about Schwartz’s whereabouts is asked to call Thompson RCMP at 204-677-6909.
