File #:


The owner of a stolen excavator contacted Lake Country RCMP when he noticed its disappearance from his construction site.   The excavator, a small black and yellow 305D 2011 Cat with VIN XER01222, was taken from lot #4 at the Benchlands Development off Tyndall Road in Lake Country.  Surveillance was located that shows a U-Haul van followed by a black full-size pick-up truck enter the area at 7:40 a.m. on Sunday February 9th, and leave with the excavator on a trailer at 7:57.  They departed on Benchland Drive and turned south on Tyndall Road.  The truck looks like it may have a fifth wheel hitch in the back and a light, perhaps chrome, strip along the side.  If you have any information on the suspects or the location of the excavator, please contact Crime Stoppers.
