RCMP gear stolen from Regina garage

The homeowners discovered the break, enter and theft at approximately 10 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 28.

REGINA — The Regina Police Service says it is investigating the theft of several items of RCMP-issued equipment and clothing, as well as two firearms.

Police point out that the firearms are personal, legally-owned rifles, which were stored in a gun safe; however, in the hands of criminals, they now pose a potential threat to public safety.

“The combination of stolen firearms and RCMP-issued clothing adds particular urgency and concern to this matter,” states the release by Regina police.

The RCMP clothing is not the standard duty uniform; it is a Public Order uniform with items bearing the RCMP shoulder patch or yellow stripe on the pants, distinguishing them as RCMP apparel.

Sometime during the night of Aug. 27-28, a suspect or suspects entered a detached garage in the 3300-block Green Moss Lane, Regina. The garage door faces into an alley. The unknown suspects stole a variety of items, most notably:

  • A Cabela’s gun locker containing a Remington 12-gauge shotgun and a Remington SPS .308-calibre rifle;
  • A duty-bag containing RCMP Public Order equipment and clothing. The stolen bag contained an RCMP rain poncho, RCMP coveralls, RCMP shoulder patches, two RCMP ballcaps (one with white lettering; one with blue lettering), RCMP inclement weather pants with yellow stripe, batons, a green gas mask, and a riot helmet.

The suspects also took a mobile air-conditioner, tools and various other items. The homeowners discovered the break, enter and theft at approximately 10 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 28, when they saw that the garage door was wide open. The Regina Police Service opened an investigation, which is ongoing.

Anyone who has information to assist in this investigation is asked to contact the Regina Police Service, or their nearest detachment or police agency. Information can be reported to the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500, or anonymously through Regina Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
