Somebody ‘saw’ something: North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP seek tool owner

The item was recovered from the area of York Road and Dingwall Street in Duncan.

Somebody “saw” something. At least that’s what the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are hoping.

In a news release issued by Const. Amron Christensen, police are thanking a “conscientious” citizen for alerting them, on June 11, to what they believe was a stolen electrical chop saw.

The item was recovered from the area of York Road and Dingwall Street in Duncan.

“Thanks to the conscientiousness of a concerned community member, RCMP members were able to recover the item and hope to return it to its rightful owner,” Christensen said.

Anyone who has recently had their chop saw stolen is asked to give the police a call and be prepared to identify it in detail (including serial number, or partial serial number if you have it).

“A photograph of your missing chop saw would also help if you are able to provide one,” Christensen added.

To report mischief, theft, or suspicious activity in the Cowichan Valley, please contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522. You can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or at cowichancrimestoppers.com to leave a secure tip online.
