Sunshine Coast RCMP are investigating a theft that’s pretty bold, and would have needed some planning.
RCMP say they had a report last week that some equipment had gone missing from a logging operation near Egmont, some big equipment – a Caterpillar 330C excavator.
The site is only accessible by water, and the thieves would have needed a large boat or a barge.
The also took two fuel pumps from high capacity tanks, a fuel hose and a dual prop leg for a small boat.
Police say the owners aren’t certain when the thefts happened, and it could have been any time in the past few months. RCMP are hoping to hear from anybody with information. Contact Cst. Kelly at the Sunshine Coast RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-222-TIPS (8477).
