On May 31, 2016 at approximately 4:45 am, two masked males entered the West Country Leisure yard in Buck Lake, Alberta and stole a quad and a side-by-side.

As they were driving away, the owner noticed them and recognized his property. He then followed the suspects in his personal vehicle but as he was calling 911, a suspect backed into his vehicle. The owner was not injured but his vehicle sustained extensive damage.

The suspects then unloaded that quad and the side-by-side and drove away.

One male can be described as approximately 6 feet tall with blonde hair.

The suspicious vehicle was described as a 1969-1972 Chevrolet or GMC, dark green with white half top, burnt right taillight.
