Two suspects are being sought after a fishing boat on a trailer was reported stolen from a storage facility in North Kawartha Township last weekend.

Peterborough County OPP say around 6:10 a.m., two suspects first cut off a padlock to a locked gate at a facility along Jack’s Lake Road, a few kilometres south of the village of Apsley. They then used a vehicle to tow away a trailer carrying a large fishing boat.
