The owners of a high end boat were only gone a few minutes — but when they returned, their boat was gone.
RCMP in Sicamous say a boat and trailer worth 80-thousand dollars was stolen Monday near the Queest Forest Service Road on Solsqua-Sicamous Road.
The owner had left it on the roadside to go get a flat tire repaired — only to find it stolen 20 minutes later.
“The boat is described as a 20 foot Mastercraft Wakeboard boat, black in colour with a distinctive blue, purple, and yellow design,” says Cpl. Wade Fisher of Sicamous RCMP.
The bottom of the hull is green in colour.
The tower had been lowered and the boat was covered in a black tarp.
The black, tandem axle Mastercraft trailer had an Alberta plate 5KD090. The registration number, as displayed near the bow of the boat was AB5671141.
Anyone with information on the theft is asked to call the Sicamous RCMP at 250-836-2878 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
