COE HILL — A $1,000 reward is offered to anyone who leads to the “recapture” of a vintage motorcycle stolen from a garage near Coe Hill in June.
The 1937 BMW replica R71 was imported from overseas and is perhaps only one of 10 or 15 like it in Canada, said Mark McMackin. The bike is black, looks like an antique Harley-Davidson or BMW and has a sidecar.
The theft happened between June 5 and June 21. Also taken was a restored, yellow 1968 Skidoo Super Olympic snowmobile, along with tools and equipment with a total value of nearly $ 15,000.
One of the security cameras on the property was damaged during the break in.
“We as community are becoming tired of this heightened activity which includes a string of cottage and house break ins as well as break ins and attempted break ins at the Red Eagle , Foodland and Coe Hill Country Market,” McMackin said.
He’s hoping a hefty reward s will hopefully prompt someone to rat out the burglars roaming the Coe Hill area lately.
There’s also a separate $500 reward posted for information that leads to the arrest the Red Eagle thieves.
