ATVs and a trailer, stolen from locked barn

Pratt Road resident had the barn door locked, but it still didn't help

Sometimes, even locking up your valuables in a secure location won’t stop the bad guys from getting their hands on them.

That was certainly the case in the dark of night on July 31 for a Pratt Road family, whose securely locked barn was broken into while they slept.

The unidentified culprit made off with a red, 250 cc Honda ‘Big Red’ ATV trike, along with a brown and green child’s 50cc Giovanni ATV quad, a similar Honda Big Red Trike and a red 2 wheeled Costco lawn trailer.

Oceanside RCMP Corporal Jesse Foreman said the suspect quietly pushed the items out of the yard and onto the street. The residents were not awoken by the theft.

“As there have been other recent thefts of lawn and recreational equipment from rural properties in the Oceanside area it is time for a general reminder,” he said. “Please consider doing a security check of your property. Could the use of good quality doors and locks, motion lighting and possibly an alarm system better protect your valuables?”

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