“It was inside a locked compound, inside a truck and cable locked to the truck,” says Steven DeBoer, co-chair of the committee that hosts the Salmon Arm Fair. “They came in with the tools.”

The thief or thieves, who broke through a fence, also took an RTV provided by Avenue Machinery of Vernon – also a Kubota RTV, cab model X1100, also bright orange. The vehicle’s estimated worth is about $25,000.

The thieves attempted to take a GMC truck provided by Ian Gray’s Salmon Arm GM but were not successful.

Salmon Arm RCMP are investigating.
