RCMP are investigating hidden traps on ATV trails south of Marchand, Manitoba.
Police say on June 7, two men from Winnipeg and one from Gardenton, were riding ATVs on the trail when they struck partially buried pieces of metal, causing their tires to blow out.
On June 10, police received a report of sharpened pieces of metal stuck in the ground along a trail located on Crown land.
RCMP say burying metal or laying roadblocks intentionally across any trail is a criminal offence and could result in a prison sentence and a substantial fine.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sprague RCMP at (204) 437-2222 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
