Dauphin RCMP say they’ve recovered a large haul of stolen property in the RM of Grandview.
Mounties say they pulled over a pickup truck with a snowmobile in the back on Wednesday due to the large number of snowmobile thefts in recent months.
Officers determined the snowmobile had in fact been stolen and arrested a 17-year-old male from the RM of Dauphin.
Two days later, the investigation led officers to search a residence in the RM of Grandview, where they say they discovered 11 stolen snowmobiles, two stolen ATVs, unsafely stored firearms and a small amount of meth.
Jordy Clyde Roberston, 21, was arrested at the scene and taken into custody.

Dauphin RCMP say the investigation continues and additional arrests are pending.
