RCMP are looking for information on the location of Steven Lundle in connection with a theft from the RM of Pipestone south of Virden.

On September 19, Virden RCMP received a report of a theft of items in the RM of Pipestone from an energy company lease site.

Stolen were various items including a smoker, gloves, boots, a TV monitor with mount among other things.

After interviewing several individuals and leads provided by victims, the investigation led to a property in Melita where some of the stolen property was suspected of being.

Virden detachment members obtained a search warrant for the property and executed it, recovering various tools, the monitor, smoker, work gloves and other items.

A John Deere lawn mower was also located & determined to be stolen so it was also seized.

There were other items located at the scene which led to Cst Robillard writing another search warrant at the location because some of the evidence gathered during the initial search led to the discovery of additional stolen property.

A second search warrant was applied for and authorized by a Justice, resulting in more stolen property recovered.

Charged with four counts of Possession of Stolen Property is Steven Steward Lundle (34) who has a last known address in Melita, but is known to frequent the Carnduff and Carlyle areas in Saskatchewan.

Because he was not located during the investigation, a warrant of arrest has been issued.

"Lundle also has a warrant for his arrest in Saskatchewan for failing to appear in court on July 8th for drug possession charges in Carlyle, SK," said Sgt. Scott Fefchak of the Virden RCMP.

"Police would like to remind the public to please ensure you have your serial numbers set aside so if your property is stolen police have a definite method of identifying stolen property.

"For all would be thieves out there, if a serial # is modified, altered, or removed, police will consider the item to be stolen and take it from you as well.

"If you happen to come across Mr. Lundle, please give RCMP in Manitoba or Saskatchewan a call."

Anyone who knows the location Steven Lundle can contact their local RCMP detachment.
