On Saturday, Sept.13, 2014 at 10:28 a.m. Campbell River Boatland reported a break and enter to their compound at 3125 Island Highway.
The manager called to report the chain-link fence was cut and three kicker outboard motors were stolen from the compound. The culprit(s) cut a hole in the fence just large enough to climb through, Campbell River RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Poppy Hallam said. Police are waiting to get more information on the stolen motors including descriptions and serial numbers. Evidence was recovered at the scene and is being examined by Campbell River RCMP Forensic Identification Section. This is the second time in a week Campbell River Boatland has reported a break and enter. Last weekend someone tried to drive through their steel roll down door, but no entry was gained.
If anyone has any information about this crime, contact the Campbell River RCMP Detachment or if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
