Break and enter at Hope construction site

RCMP say $46,000 worth of tools and items were stolen

More than 100 items were stolen from a construction site just west of the 26000 block of the Trans Canada Highway earlier this week.

The theft happened sometime overnight between July 27 and July 28. There are two large trailers on the site that were been broken into and $46,000 worth of tools and items were stolen. Some of the items taken include a Honda Generator, a Stihl chainsaw, four Norbar Torque wrenches, and a set of Helly Hanson rain gear.

“In considering the logistics, it would have taken a long time to load all these items and likely more than one person to do it all,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck.

Anyone with information regarding this theft is asked to contact Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stopper at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
