Shoemaker Bay Road and Tsuma As Drive

Crime Stoppers needs your help in solving the following crime:

Sometime between Thursday February 20th at noon and Monday February 24th at 11 am, an industrial site on Sproat Lake was broken into.
A construction company working at a dry lands sort site located at Shoemaker Bay Rd and Tsuma As Dr was accessed by some unknown suspect or suspects. The suspects broke into a large metal storage container and several thousands of dollars’ worth of power tools and related construction equipment were stolen. Given the remoteness of the site and amount of property stolen, the suspect or suspects would have required the use of some form of motorized transport to come and go from the site.
Anyone who travelled along these back roads, including Canal Main and Cous Main during this time period and observed any suspicious activity or who has dash cam footage of any vehicles, including ATVs seen in the area during this time is asked to contact the Port Alberni RCMP at 250-723-2424.
Anyone with information on this, or any other crime, is asked to contact the Port Alberni RCMP at 250-723-2424 or Alberni Valley Crime Stoppers at:
