Homeowner gives chase

Know anyone with an older model, dark brown car…with the rear window missing?

The vehicle was used by a pair of thieves who tried to steal downriggers from a boat on Sunday night.

According to RCMP, it was about 9:30 p.m., when a home owner in the 800 block of Alder St., noticed two males taking the downriggers from his boat. The owner gave chase as the thieves fled with one of the downriggers and tossed it into the back seat of the car. The owner then reached through the window, grabbed his downrigger and then used it to smash the rear window of the car as the culprits fled.
