Make a Report Citizen Online Reporting System
Theft from Vehicle
Theft from Vehicle is defined as the taking of property from within a vehicle without the owner's permission.
Examples can include the theft of a car stereo, vehicle parts, laptop computer, or other tangible item(s) from a locked or unlocked vehicle.
If your personal or business vehicle was entered and items within were stolen, you may file an online report under the following criteria:
- The estimated theft is valued under $5000.00
- The item(s) stolen were not firearms
- The offence occurred within the City of Winnipeg
- There are no known suspects or witnesses (name, license plate, etc.)
- There are no surveillance images or evidence (items) left behind by the suspect(s)
If your vehicle was stolen or has been damaged as a result of an attempted theft, ie. ignition damaged, the offence is not eligible for online reporting. Theft of a licence plate is not eligible for online reporting either.
If your occurrence does not meet the criteria, please call the police non-emergency line at 204-986-6222 or visit a local police station.
If you had property stolen from more than one vehicle, separate reports must be entered for each vehicle.
Filing a false police report is a crime.
You will receive an unofficial copy of the report at the time you submit it. This report will have a temporary tracking number and cannot be used for insurance purposes. It is for your records only. Your report will be reviewed by a police officer within 3 business days. Once approved, you will receive a copy of your official report with a permanent occurrence number. This number will have 10 digits beginning with the letter "E", (eg. E1200001234). This report may be used for insurance purposes.
