Revelstoke RCMP are looking for information after a motorcycle and truck were stolen from two different homes this week.

RCMP say a 2007 Kawasaki KLX 250 motorcycle was reported stolen from a home on Edward Street on Thursday, Sept. 8.

The bike is green and white in colour, and is street legal and capable of on and off road riding.

It appears that those responsible for the theft rolled the bike away from the owner’s residence,” wrote Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky in a news release.

The next day, police received a report that a 2006 Toyota Tacoma was stolen from a house on Eighth Street East. The owner told police he was alerted to the theft at around 4:30 a.m. when he heard the truck being driven away.

It didn’t take long for the truck to be recovered. At about 10 a.m., some people hiking near Bridge Creek found the vehicle abandoned off Powerhouse Road near the industrial park.

“It appears to have been driven aggressively in Revelstoke and off-road at the end of Powerhouse Road,” wrote Grabinsky.

RCMP say there have been numerous thefts reported in recent weeks and are once again reminding people to secure their homes and property to help prevent these thefts.

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-837-5255 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
