Tumbler Ridge RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in solving a major theft in the Peace Region.
On July 15, a bulldozer, excavator, two storage trailers and two pumps were stolen from a “lay-down” site for a drilling company operating in the area.
The total estimated worth of the stolen equipment is about $500,000.
The site has been used for storage by the company since September 2014 when they put a hold on their Tumbler Ridge operations, according to RCMP.
The company is not being named at this time.
Anyone who has information about this crime is asked to contact the Tumbler Ridge detachment at 250-242-5252 or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
