Theft of Construction Equipment

See video
March 22nd, 2017 - Police & the Community

Barrie Police have collected various video surveillance at surrounding businesses after two incidents of large front end loader attachments being stolen off job sites in the south end of the city.

On Friday, March 3rd, 2017 Barrie Police began an investigation into a theft where a front end loader was stolen from the parking lot at 35 Mapleview Drive West, in the City of Barrie, sometime overnight.  The loader was located the next morning at Salem Road and Veterans Drive but the front end plow had been removed before it had been abandoned.

On Monday, March 13th, 2017 a similar incident occurred where a CAT front end loader was stolen from a job site on Welham Road.  When employees canvassed the area in the morning, the loader was located at Huronia Medical Building at 480 Huronia Road, a short distance away.   Video shows a male suspect wearing a reflective construction jacket being dropped off by a silver car at the site where the CAT was stolen.  The male is seen walking into the yard, starting up the machine and driving it out to the roadway.  Further surveillance shows the same vehicle driving between where the loader was stolen and where it was abandoned to pick up the driver. When located, the front end forks were missing from the machine and video from the building shows the loader driving in with no forks attached a short time after it was stolen.  

At this time police believe these two incidents may be connected and the persons responsible may have a similar machine where the attachments would be valuable.  It is also possible the suspects have either a business or residence in the area as the large and cumbersome pieces of equipment are moved quickly between locations. 

Police are continuing their investigation at this time and wish for anyone who may have information to please contact PC B Bromley of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 ext. 2780 or email at bbromley@barriepolice.ca. Any information can be provided anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or leave an anonymous tip online at www.tipsubmit.com
