Not a drill: RCMP say thieves armed with auger stole $20K worth of canola from Manitoba silo

RCMP want to drill down to the bottom of a theft they're calling "brazen."

Police say grain thieves drained $20,000 worth of canola seed from a silo on Highway 2, about 10 kilometres west of Glenboro, Man., on March 19.

Glenboro is about 160 kilometres southwest of Winnipeg.

According to police, the thieves brought a grain auger to the farmyard and used it to remove the seed from the silo before driving off with a full grain truck. They left the auger behind.

The investigation continues.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact Carberry RCMP at 204-834-2905 or call Manitoba Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
