Mounties are looking for public assistance in tracking down a stolen excavator.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Const. Markus Lueder said the mini-Bobcat excavator was recently taken from a construction site on Trumpeter Road.

Police believe the Bobcat — valued at more than $20,000 -— was stolen on or around Wednesday, Aug. 17.

That’s also the suspected date of a separate theft that occurred in the 3100 block of the Cowichan Valley Highway.

Welding equipment was taken from a storage shed at the address, and while police are following up on a possible lead on that theft, anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact police.

The North Cowichan/Duncan detachment can be reached at 250-748-5522; or place an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
