The McBride RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance regarding two recent thefts which occurred in the area.

Sometime between 4pm Tues. April 23rd and 7am Wednesday April 24th, two complete portable furnace units were taken from Lucille Snowmobile Trailhead shed and Bell Mountain Trailhead shed respectively. Items also taken were wiring, thermostats and propane tanks from both locations.

The theft is a considerable financial blow to the McBride Snowmobile Club who supply and maintain the snowmobile sheds for tourists and local outdoor enthusiasts.

The RCMP and the McBride Snowmobile Club urge any members of the public who witnessed anything suspicious in the two areas or have any information to contact the McBride RCMP at 250-569-2255.
