Meanwhile, the Milestone RCMP is asking for the public’s help after a report of a stolen enclosed trailer from Avonlea, and a missing “Gator” vehicle that was apparently put into the trailer and taken off the property.

A black pickup truck, make and model unknown, may have been responsible for the theft; RCMP say a vehicle matching that description was observed early in the morning driving west on Highway 334.

The stolen trailer is a 2013 Canadian Nighthawk cargo trailer, approximately seven feet by 16 feet, and has a ramp door on the back of the trailer, with a walk-in door on the side.

The stolen Gator has camouflage markings on it.

Tips about this offence can be called in to Sask. CrimeStoppers or to the Milestone RCMP.
