Police are looking for thieves who broke into a rural shed during a blizzard earlier this month. They also appear to have hit the ditch while trying to make their getaway.
During a snowstorm on March 4, someone broke into the garage and shed on a rural property in the RM of Whitehead. Stolen were a variety of tools and an older model pellet handgun.
The getaway vehicle is believed to have been a black, late-90s Honda Civic, and police say it looks like they may have hit the ditch on Pilling Road about half a kilometre north of the Trans-Canada Highway, after leaving the scene.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Brandon RCMP at 204-726-7522, or to contact Crime Stoppers.
