Crime Stoppers needs your help in solving the following crime:

Brazen thieves stole a piece of equipment at a work site while an employee step way for but a few minutes.
On Friday March 20th at approximately 1:30 pm, a team of TELUS employees was working near Roger Creek Park in the 4700 block of Pemberton Rd. A generator was set up and being used to ventilate the air from an underground utility service area prior the employees going down to perform their work. A TELUS employee had been standing by the generator while it was in operation. The employee then stepped away for a few minutes and walked over to speak with another employee a short distance away.
During this short window of time, the unknown suspect or suspects stole the generator after detaching it from the ventilator. The generator is described a red older model 2000 watt Honda generator. It is marked with a TELUS equipment number sticker.
This generator was used as a primary piece of safety equipment for the employees as it improved the air quality by removing noxious fumes and gases in the underground utility service areas.
Anyone with information on this, or any other crime, is asked to contact the Port Alberni RCMP at 250-723-2424.
