Two recreational vehicles were stolen from backyards in the same neighbourhood.
According to Campbell River RCMP, a 2002 Honda TRX90 ATV was stolen from a residence located in the 300 block of Thulin Street.
The theft occurred overnight on April 17-18.
The red all-terrain vehicle has black seats, black headlights and has Fox stickers on the front. It’s valued at approximately $3,000.
Then on Saturday, at 1:18 a.m., a resident in the 300 block of McLean Street called police after hearing someone in the backyard.
It was too late by the time the resident went to investigate as the thief made off with a green 90cc dirt bike. It’s a four-stroke ode with the word “Geo” on it, and is valued at about $400.
The culprit made off in the direction of the green area by the Museum at Campbell River.
“It is unknown at this time if the two thefts are related, however both occurred within a one block radius within two days of each other, and both motorized vehicles were stolen out of backyards,” said Cpl. Poppy Hallam. She advised if you hear suspicious noises at night, call police, as there could be a theft in progress or you could help stop an offence before it’s committed.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Campbell River RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
