The Peterborough County detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is investigating the theft of more than $60,000 of power sports equipment from a marina in Apsley last week.
On Friday, March 10th at around 10:30 a.m., OPP officers were called to investigate a theft from Tucker’s Marine on Highway 28 in Apsley.
Between 3:15 a.m. and 3:40 a.m. on Friday morning, two suspects were captured on security cameras moving trailers around the boat yard. The suspects stole the shop truck and hooked onto a side by side on a trailer. In this vehicle, thieves also loaded two outboard motors and a power washer.
A second suspect in another vehicle backed into the property and hooked onto an enclosed snowmobile trailer containing two snow machines.
The thieves stole the following items, valued at well over $60,000:
- a grey 2008 Chevrolet Silverado pickup with an attached silver Snow Dog snow plow
- a black 2016 Yamaha Wolverine 700 side by side
- an open deck 2017 Advantage galvanized trailer
- a black 2011 Yamaha Venture GT 900 snowmobile
- a silver 2016 Yamaha Apex 1000 snowmobile
- a black dual-axle 7×17 enclosed trailer
- two outboard motors
- a power washer.
In addition to the pickup truck stolen from the marina, police are also looking for a black 2008 to 2013 Chevrolet/GMC four-door pickup truck involved in this incident, which may also be responsible for other thefts in the region.
