An RCMP tip line is being set up to help slow the growing off-road vehicle theft industry in Manitoba.
According to the RCMP, the number of off-road auto thefts has risen sharply over the last few months, specifically in the Interlake area.
Dating back to January 2013, 23 all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) have yet to be recovered in the region. The Interlake area has also seen a high number of snowmobile theft over the previous winter, RCMP say.
The tip line number: 1-855-814-4118. RCMP can also be reached via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Members of the public are asked to used the line and email address to provide information regarding vehicle thefts, including off-road vehicles, heavy machinery and construction site equipment in rural Manitoba.
All information and tips relating to vehicle theft will be treated confidentially.
