During the evening of Aug. 27, or the early morning of Aug. 28, unknown persons broke into the Ministry of Forests locked compound in Alexis Creek.
The suspects forced entry into a building and stole two ATVs, which belong to the local BC Wildfire Service “Chilcotin Ravens Unit Crew” — a wildfire suppression team based out of the Alexis Creek Forestry office.
The stolen ATVs were a 2012 red Honda TRX 420 and a 2008 green Suzuki King Quad.
The ATVs were used extensively this summer by the Ravens Crew to fight the Puntzi Lake wildfire and their loss is damaging to the Ravens Crew ability to fight wildfires.
The Alexis Creek RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance with any information which would lead to the recovery of the stolen ATV and the arrest of the persons responsible.
Please contact the RCMP at 250-394-4211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
