Overnight on Friday May 2nd, 2015 two sheds were broken into in Owen Sound. One was in the area of the 1200 block of 4th Avenue East, the locked shed was force opened and three mountain bikes were stolen. The value of the stolen bikes is estimated to be $6,500. Taken was a Rocky Mountain ETSX30, brown in colour, a Rocky Mountain Slayer SXC30 black in colour and a Schwinn MOAB lime green in colour. The other shed which as well was forced open was in the 1000 block of 4th Avenue East. Taken was several chainsaws, a compressor, angle grinder and an impact wrench.
Just after 5:00 a.m. on Saturday morning a patrol officer spotted three males in the area of 10th Street and 3rd Avenue East. These males were observed to be carrying duffle bags and chainsaws. As the officer approached to investigate the parties they quickly fled on foot. The one male was observed to discard what he was carrying in a garbage container in the 900 block of 3rd Avenue East. Later recovered from this container was one of the chainsaws and the impact wrench. The males were last seen in the area of Carney's lane heading towards 2nd Avenue East. The one male was shorter than the other two who were tall and thin.
It is believed that one or all of these parties may live in close proximity to the down town area or have a location near the down town core where they can quickly conceal their stolen property.
Police are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to contact the Owen Sound Police at 519-376-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
