RCMP advise the owner of the business has reported the stolen lights are actually 1000 W lights, manufactured by Chin-Up Hydroponics (see attached photo).
On Aug. 25, 2020, the Barriere RCMP received a report of a theft from a commercial farming operation that is under construction in the Louis Creek industrial Park on Enterprise Way.
A lock to the business gate had been cut, and a large number of 1,200 watt high pressure sodium lights suitable for growing plants were taken.
Also taken were a number of construction tools including a Stanley brand laser level, a Hyundai gas generator, and a Lincoln 210 MIG/TIG welder.
“It is believed, based on the volume of materials taken, that the suspect(s) made multiple visits to the site sometime between the hours of 6 p.m. on Aug. 24, and 7 a.m. on Aug. 25 to remove the items,” stated Corporal Rob Welsman.
Anyone who travelled on Agate Bay road, Enterprise Way, or Highway 5 during this time period who observed persons and or active vehicles within the construction site, located at the north east corner of Enterprise Way and Agate Bay road, are asked to call the Barriere RCMP at 250-672-9918.
