Thieves raided, stole storage sheds from Abbotsford SPCA

Police looking for suspects who may have used a Toyota pickup

Police are looking for thieves who not only raided two storage sheds at the Abbotsford SPCA but also stole the sheds themselves.

The theft occurred Monday evening at the BC SPCA’s branch on Industrial Way.

The thieves, who police believe used a Toyota pickup truck, took two lawn mowers, a weed eater, gas cans and a propane tank.

“I am so relieved that all the animals are safe, but for this to happen on Thanksgiving weekend feels like an extra-low blow,” branch manager Sarah Ringer said in a statement. “They had to take the storage sheds apart to steal them and they made two trips to take everything.”

Staff and volunteers need the stolen gear to maintain the branch’s grounds, she said.

“Being a non-profit organization, we try to use every penny to help animals, so this hits us hard,” Ringer said.

The SPCA is asking for donations of money or items (two storage sheds, a lawn mower, a weed eater, gas cans and a propane tank) to replace what was stolen.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the incident is under investigation and police are canvassing the area for video surveillance.
