Carman, Manitoba

News release

On February 13, 2024, Pembina Valley RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle on Highway 3, between the communities of Thornhill and Darlingford. It was reported that two males in a light blue BMW SUV with an Ontario licence plate, were stopped on the highway, flashing their vehicle lights and waving their arms in an attempt to get other motorists to stop. Once stopped, the males approached the motorists and offered to sell them jewellery, such as watches and rings, or asked for money for gas stating they are not from the area. No threats were made and nobody was injured but many of the motorists felt intimidated.

Police have received several of these reports from this area and elsewhere in southern Manitoba over the last week.

Manitoba RCMP are warning the public to be safe and aware if pulling over to assist someone roadside.

If you have any information please call Pembina Valley RCMP at 204-745-6760, call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, or secure tip online at
