Thieves make off with trucks, ATV & dirt bike

Thieves made off with two trucks, a dirt bike and an ATV from Revelstoke early Wednesday morning. Fortunately, they didn’t go too far and everything except the ATV was recovered near Sicamous a little later.

The theft was reported June 8 just before 5 a.m. when police were notified of a stolen dirt bike and ATV from the area of the Peaks Lodge, Revelstoke RCMP said.

Neighbouring RCMP detachments were notified and at around 5:30 a.m. Salmon Arm RCMP began to make patrols, during which found the dirt bike, ATV and two trucks in the Mara Lake area near Sicamous.

“When the owners of the trucks were contacted it was discovered that the trucks had been stolen from Revelstoke,” said Cpl. Rod Wiebe of the Revelstoke RCMP.

The first truck, a 2003 Ford F-350 was stolen from the 1000 block Fourth St. East and the second truck was a 1999 Ford F-350 stolen from the 600 block of Eighth St. East.

One truck had the rear window smashed to gain entry while there is no indication how the other truck was stolen, said Wiebe.

The ATV has yet to be recovered as of Thursday morning. It is described as a 2011 Polaris Range, red and white in colour.

The dirt bike and ATV belonged to two men from Lloydminster – one lived on the Alberta side of the city and the other on the Saskatchewan side. Wiebe said he didn’t know for sure if they were guests of the Peaks Lodge but “it is believed [the dirt bike and ATV] were in a locked compound.”

There are no suspects yet but the forensics team has been called in to examine the vehicles, said Wiebe.
