RCMP seeks public assistance on Port Edward theft file

If someone is offering you a great deal on a couple of chain saws, keep the Prince Rupert RCMP in mind, as they might wish to take a look what is up on the for sale listings.

A break-in at a residence in Port Edward, has the Prince Rupert detachment seeking the assistance of the public as they try to get more information on a theft from the 200 block of Hillcrest Avenue in the District.

Responding officers took the theft complaint on June 6th, with a property owner advising that someone had broken into a shop on their property and stolen two new Stihl chainsaws.

No timeline as to when it is believed that the two chainsaws may have been taken was provided, as well at this time the RCMP have not identified any potential suspects in the incident.
