Police are now asking home and property owners to search their yards, sheds and other outbuildings, and any unused or abandoned vehicles including RVs and campers.

Property owners are also asked to check along fences, under decks and shrubbery and even open areas.

The new areas of focus are the neighbourhoods from the Transcona area to Whitmore Park.

Uniformed officers and members of Search and Rescue Regina (SARR) performed a sweep in the area of 3rd Avenue and Arthur Street in the Rosemont neighbourhood this past weekend.
