A Salmon Arm store is out a significant amount after thieves made off with five pricey pieces of equipment.
Mounties were called on Oct. 12 at 8:30 a.m. to a large theft occurring in the 3100 block of 10th Avenue SW.
“Overnight three people with their faces covered cut the fence and entered the compound at a business and stole five Cub Cadet Lawn Mowers,” Staff Sgt. Scott West said in a press release.
“The trio of thieves were seen loading the mowers on a trailer towed by a truck.”
The Salmon Arm RCMP is seeking public assistance in recovering these five lawn tractors which have a total estimated value of more than $60,000.
Anyone with information on this theft or having seen the distinctive yellow mowers is asked to call the Salmon Arm RCMP at 250-832‐6044 or to leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
