Last Sunday, RCMP made a quick recovery of some stolen goods.
A shopvac was discovered stolen when Swift Current City RCMP responded to a 3 a.m. break and enter at a local business.
The cold caper proceeded to leave tracks in the snow, which the RCMP followed a short distance away.
RCMP traced the frosty boot marks to a parked semi-trailer, where the shop vac appears to have been hastily discarded. RCMP found it thrown under the trailer and returned it to the business.
As it turns out, crime isn't particularly worth it in -40 C weather.
If anyone has information on this incident and the identity of this individual or possible individuals, they can call 310-RCMP or the Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
