Surveillance equipment is continually being stolen from a Chemainus business.

The video camera and its replacements located at the rear door of CRVTEK IT Consulting Co. have been stolen three times in two weeks. Two men are suspected in the thefts.

"The business owner is getting frustrated,'' reported North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Cpl. Krista Hobday. "Police are wondering if the men are trying to wear down the owner and break into the business once he is tired of replacing the cameras.''

The first theft occurred Jan. 23 at 7 a.m., the second on Feb. 7 at 8:24 a.m. and the third two days later, Sunday, Feb. 9, at 6 a.m.

Reviewing the film from the first two thefts, police noted the images of two males were captured. One is described as Caucasian with a bandana covering his nose and mouth.

The third theft showed what appeared to be two young Caucasian males on two older motorbikes. Both males were wearing full motorcycle helmets and face shields.

Anyone with information on these thefts is asked to contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
