Snowmobiles appear to be a high volume theft item, particularly in the winter months.

File Number: 2014-6

On Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2014, at approximately 11 a.m., the Princeton RCMP received a report of a Theft from Vehicle, which occurred sometime overnight in the first bench area of Princeton. Stolen was a yellow and black snowmobile helmet and yellow Skidoo goggles, along with a dark blue Air Pro Plus helmet camera and iPhone speaker.

It also appears that the vehicle, a Ford F250 pickup truck was attempted to be stolen, as the ignition had been tampered with. This truck was likely target due to an attached trailer with two snowmobiles.

This incident is still under investigation.

Snowmobiles appear to be a high volume theft item, particularly in the winter months. The Princeton RCMP would like to remind the general public to secure their vehicles, including snowmobiles, keeping valuable items out of vehicles, use anti-theft devices when available and park in well-lit locations.

If anyone should have further information and/or knowledge of this incident, please contact Princeton RCMP Detachment at 250-295-6911 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
