Kingston Police are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects involved in the theft of a truck and pieces of heavy equipment from a construction site in the city’s north end.
According to Kingston Police, officers were dispatched to a construction site in the area of Division Street and Dalton Avenue on Sunday, Mar. 27, 2022, after receiving a report of a break and enter that had occurred at the location.
On Wednesday, Mar. 30, 2022, police said the suspects had gained entry to the construction site by cutting through an entrance gate, allowing them into the inner yard of the site. Both a pickup truck with a salter, and a skid steer loader were stolen from the yard sometime between Sunday, Mar. 20 and Sunday, Mar. 27, 2022, according to Kingston Police.
The skid steer, a Bobcat S300, had a larger, nine-foot snow bucket attached to it at the time of the theft, police said. It is white in colour with an orange back door, and has standard skid steer tires.
The stolen vehicle, a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, is described as being a “Patriot blue” four-door twin-cab with Toyo tires, silver aluminum rims, and silver/chrome bedrails, with the licence plate ‘CUTURLWN,’ and a small LED light on the roof. A red Western Tornado salt spreader with black lids was attached to the bed of the pickup truck at the time it was stolen.
Anyone with information regarding these thefts, the break and enter, and/or the whereabouts of the stolen machinery is asked to contact Detective Andrew Wilby at 613-549-4660 ext. 6217, or via email at [email protected].
