Winnipeg police have arrested a man after discovering a chop shop with approximately $80,000 in stolen vehicles.

Project Navigator was initiated by police in September to investigate allegations that someone was “chopping up” stolen boats, off-road vehicles and trailers in the Winnipeg area.

Police were led to an auto yard in Headingley, where they recovered several stolen vehicles and trailers.

Police later executed a search warrant on November 29 at a home in the 800 block of Elmhurst Road as part of their investigation.

A 40-year-old man was arrested at his home and will be charged with numerous offences. He was released on a promise to appear.

Police say the recovered property includes snowmobiles, various types of trailers, boats and one three-wheeler. Officers also seized three trucks being operated by the accused, including a 2002 Lincoln Navigator, a 2000 Ford Excursion, and a 2014 Ford F-250.
