CRIME:            THEFT OF ATV

RCMP FILE:    2018-31873

Police are still on the lookout for suspects in the theft of an ATV that occurred on June 10th on the 4000 block of June Springs Road. Around 4:00 AM on June 10th a white Ford F550 dump truck pulled up to the side of the road near the residence. The suspect was wearing a high-visibility vest making it appear to the home owners they were construction workers. Later that morning the home owners then discovered their fence at the rear of the property had been cut and their shop had been broken into. Stolen was a blue 2007 Polaris quad (VIN # is 4X1TN76AX7A961935) with large 21” tires and no battery attached. A few weeks later the owner reported seeing a male riding his quad past him at a very high speed. Below are some updated images of the suspects and the stolen ATV that were recently captured. The male is described as being a Caucasian male in his forties and he may be linked with other thefts in the area. If you can identify this suspect, please contact the Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers.
