Police would like to identify three women after gas was reported stolen from a Steinbach gas station on Aug. 23.


Steinbach RCMP are looking for information regarding thefts in the community, including incidents at two businesses targeted in recent weeks.

On Aug. 24, police say a man entered Source for Sports and, while employees were busy with other customers, took four bats from the store without paying.

RCMP would also like to identify another group of individuals after gas was reported stolen from the Brandt Street Co-op. Three females in a GMC pickup truck filled up with $94 worth of gas on Aug. 23 and left without paying. The driver was described as having brown hair and a beige sweater. The other two passengers had blonde hair, both wore plaid shirts.

Police are also investigating a report of a break and enter to a detached garage on Hanover Street in Steinbach, which is thought to have occurred sometime overnight between Aug. 22 and Aug. 24. Meat was stolen from a freezer, along with a welder, drill, two batteries and some screw drivers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Steinbach RCMP at 204-326-4452 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or or text "TIPMAN" plus a message to Crimes (274637).
