Boat thieves active

Just because boating season is wrapping up doesn’t mean boat thieves have gone into hibernation.

That sad fact came clear to one Oceanside resident this week, when thieves made off with a 12-foot aluminum boat that had been anchored off Wall Beach on Tuesday.

The boat, a Lund model with registration number BC974226, also had a black, 15-horsepower Mercury outboard motor on the back.

Police estimate the value of the missing boat at $6,000.

Anyone with information about this theft is requested to call the Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111.
