Emerson RCMP are investigating a theft that was reported last weekend during the Canada Day festivities in Vita. 

Organizer Ang Boychuk was volunteering at the festival when the theft happened. 

“We had a wood carver who was displaying some pieces that he was selling raffle tickets to, to raise money for Ukraine,” she explains. “He did raise a phenomenal amount of money however four pieces of his art went missing on Friday night.” 

Boychuk says this is a really tough situation and she just does not understand why someone would take these items that were being used to support Ukraine during wartime. 

Emerson RCMP asks anyone with information to give them a call at 204-373-2505.
