Last year our office (Saskatoon GIS) worked a joint project with Saskatoon Police Service Auto theft that was quite successful. I'll give you the short version if you want more I can do that later.

SPS and RCMP had numerous John Deere tractor and equipment thefts in the areas. SPS auto theft ( Bryce Bellageron and James Wilde ) developed a suspect that resided in a rural area by Delisle Sask. A joint effort was started, and in the end a search warrant was executed by our units on this individual. in total there were 5 new John Deere tractors recovered, other farm equipment, trailers, trucks, side by sides, quads and various other items. In total I think the total dollar value of items recovered was 1.2 million $$ . This guy was never a suspect in anything up until this investigation, and turned out he had been stealing everything he owned for about 10 years.
