EGG LAKE – Cranberry-Portage RCMP are asking the public to be on the lookout for an unusually large stolen item, a 20 metre cell tower.
That’s about the height of a six storey building.
The tower, which was used to support a cell phone booster and wireless internet, was stolen on April 2nd from Egg Lake, Manitoba.
It was disassembled and loaded on to a trailer pulled by a red Dodge truck, according to a post on the RCMP’s Facebook page.
The suspect truck was last seen heading east on PTH 60 Monday afternoon. RCMP believe the suspects spent the night in The Pas.
Anyone who has any information regarding the incident or saw the truck and trailer towing portions of the tower are asked to call RCMP at 1-204-472-4044.
Egg Lake, Manitoba is roughly 700 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg.
