Three people are facing a long list of charges after Gimli RCMP discovered thousands of dollars worth of stolen property at a property in the RM of Gimli.

“For the second time this month, RCMP officers have recovered tens of thousands of dollars worth of stolen property.”, said Insp. Brent Lemieux, RCMP East District Operations Officer.

On September 29, officers with the Manitoba East District Crime Reduction Enforcement Support Team (CREST) unit, along with assistance from the Gimli RCMP Detachment, RCMP Emergency Response Team (ERT) and Police Dog Services (PDS), executed a search warrant at a property located in the RM of Gimli.


During the search, officers recovered thousands of dollars worth of stolen property, including multiple trailers, construction equipment, a camper, firearms, cash, cocaine and other controlled substances. Some of the recovered property had been reported stolen from as far away as southern Manitoba.

48-year-old Michell Verrier, from the RM of Gimli, was arrested and faces a long list of charges. RCMP also arrested a 48-year-old female and a 30-year-old male from Winnipeg.

RCMP continue to investigate.
