On March 16, at approximately 7 a.m., Stonewall RCMP responded to a break and enter at a business on Road 78 North, in the RM of Rockwood.
RCMP said a front-end loader and a pickup truck had been stolen, but the suspect didn’t get very far.
The loader was later found down the road from the business, along with a damaged side-by-side offroad vehicle. The pickup was still on the property, stuck in the snow in a gravel pit.
Officers approaching the truck noticed it was running and that a man was asleep inside. He was arrested without incident.
The man, 22, has been charged with breaking and entering, possessing break-in instruments, and possessing property obtained by crime.
RCMP are still looking for the owner of the side-by-side — a red Polaris Ranger which has been painted black.
Anyone with information is asked to call Stonewall RCMP at 204-467-5015.
