Thieves made off with two snowmobiles from a Revelstoke-area business early Friday morning, RCMP say.

According to a news release, RCMP were informed of the thefts from a business west of Revelstoke on the Trans-Canada Highway on Dec. 19 at around 2:15 a.m..

The stolen snowmobiles were both 2012 Arctic Cat M1100 Turbos, one black and one white. Both had green and black sled covers.

They were in an 8’ X 10’ aluminum open trailer that was registered in Alberta.

The sleds and trailer have an estimated value of more than $50,000.

“The Revelstoke RCMP recommend the use of preventative measures in protecting these very expensive recreational items,” wrote Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky in a news release. “Such items as pad locks and chains for sleds, tracking devices, hitch coupler locks, and disabling trucks overnight can deter thefts. In addition, through registering sleds and having that information as well as photos of the stolen items can assist in broadcasting the information through all policing communities.”

Last week, the RCMP unveiled a bait sled program that will be in place throughout the B.C. Interior this winter.

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