Oil Patch Thefts remain a problem in Fort St. John

Oil patch theft remains a major problem in this area…and the RCMP reports the latest series of break and enters occurred on Monday.

Police say several rigs being stored in the area, of 81st avenue and 90th street in Fort St. John were targeted.

Copper wiring and tools worth more than $12,000 were stolen…and police investigators have now concluded the same thieves were likely responsible, for the theft of equipment from other rig companies in the area.

They’re seeking public assistance in the investigation, and they note the stolen tools may be marked E-112.

They’re taking public assistance information calls at the toll free crime stoppers number…1-800-222-8477.
