A contractor working on the Pelmewash Parkway project contacted Lake Country RCMP on the morning of October 11th to report an overnight theft of a yellow 2015 compact John Deere 35G excavator.  The excavator had been parked about a kilometer north of Ponderosa Road for the night.  It appears that suspects loaded the machine onto a flat deck trailer and headed north on Pelmewash Parkway.  The excavator was in near new condition, approximately 6 feet in width by 6 feet in length with factory stickers affixed and a straight blade clean up bucket attached to the front arm.  The machine had a notable dent on the front left side of the frame below the side door.  The excavator’s VIN is 1FF035GXLFK273190.
