Several Global Positioning System (GPS) devices have been stolen from rural locations in Southwest Saskatchewan. 
The particular GPS devices that have been stolen are designed for use in farm tractors to assist with tracking and steering.  The devices that have been stolen have an estimated value from $3000.00 to $11,500 each.

 

 

These are expensive items and therefore a targeted item for thieves.  The RCMP would like to ask anyone who owns such devices to document the serial numbers and, if possible, put a unique marking on the device (such as an engraving or scratching a name into the cover of the GPS) that would assist with identifying the device should it be stolen.

 

This matter is being investigated by the General Investigation section in Swift Current.
If anyone has information about these thefts, please contact the RCMP in Swift Current at (306)778-4870 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
