Police are looking for answers to a significant theft in Sasquatch Provincial Park.

It was discovered on Jan. 9 that someone had broken into a steel container at the Hicks Lake campground. Stolen were a large Cummings generator and a 150 gallon Tidy Tank. The theft would have occurred sometime between Dec. 9, 2012 and Jan. 9.

The equipment stolen is the property of the campground. The generator was used to power the campground's water system.

"Although there could be a lengthy time delay between the theft and realizing the theft occurred, we are hoping that someone has information," said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.  The suspect, or suspects, would have needed a large truck to remove the generator from the container.  The generator is valued at approximately $5,000 to $7,000.

If you have any information regarding this theft, please contact the Agassiz RCMP at 604 796-2211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).
