Police are investigating a recent string of snowmobile thefts in Orillia and Ramara Township.
According to the OPP, at least three suspects entered a fenced area at a Harvie Settlement Road business in Orillia last Tuesday (March 24) and stole a covered snowmobile trailer containing two snowmobiles.
“Surveillance footage was obtained and the truck is described as a dark Chevrolet Silverado with dark coloured rims. A red and grey 2015 Skidoo and a yellow 2009 Skidoo MXZ 550 were stolen in this occurrence,” reads a media release.
Around 5:30 a.m. Friday (March 27), thieves drove a truck into a fenced area at a business on West Street South in Orillia and stole another covered trailer containing two snowmobiles.
“Surveillance footage showed three male suspects driving a dark pickup truck, possibly a Chevrolet Silverado extended cab with dark coloured rims. Stolen items include a black 2016 Skidoo 800, a yellow 2000 Skidoo MXZ and a grey 2010 Blazer trailer,” a media release reads.
“Sometime overnight between March 27, 2020 and March 28, 2020, a dark coloured, late model Chevrolet Silverado attended a Township of Ramara residence and stole a 2006 Triton snowmobile trailer containing a silver 2015 Skidoo GSX.”
