Solar panel swiped from slippery conditions warning sign on Chemainus Road
Cops are looking to nab whoever swiped a solar panel from a sign warning drivers of slippery conditions before crossing Chemainus River Bridge.
The two by two-and-a-half feet panel valued at $400 was attached to a portable traffic digital sign board on Chemainus Road at Ashcroft Road.
It went missing between Jan. 24 to 28.
"Thefts like this cost the taxpayers money so local Mounties would like to return the solar panel to the Municipality," stated North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Cpl. Krista Hobday in a media release.
Anyone with information should call the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment at 250-748-5522 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers and if you provide information to that leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property or the seizure of illicit drugs, you could be eligible for a cash award.
