A Manitoba smelter would like its nickel back.
Not you, Chad Kroeger. The real deal.
RCMP announced Thursday they are investigating a bizarre theft of four bundles of nickel plates stolen on the night of May 13 from Vale's Manitoba operations in Thompson.
The missing nickel 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.
The value of the looted goods is estimated at $110,000.
RCMP said a surveillance photo shows a flatbed truck driving off with the nickel plates.
RCMP say anyone information is asked to call 204-677-6911. If tipsters wish to remain anonymous, contact Manitoba Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS) or www.manitobacrimestoppers.com , or text "TIPMAN" plus your message to Crimes (274637).
