Montreal police and members of the Section des enquêtes criminelles Ouest du SPVM are searching for suspects in a big time heist from this past winter.

According to an SPVM press release, a group of people stole a container on January 20 that were full of 596 bars of silver from a transportation company in Lasalle. The suspects allegedly took possession of the cargo by using “falsified documents.”

The value of the stolen cargo is estimated to be worth more than $10 million.

The SPVM says it will reward $2,000 to anyone whose information leads to an arrest.

Anyone with information pertaining to the case is asked to call 911, Info-Crime MontrĂ©al (514 393-1133), or through the SPVM’s website.

All tips will be treated confidentially and anonymously.
