THE North Vancouver RCMP is asking for the public's help in locating a stolen go-kart.
The vehicle was taken from a residential shed in the 300-block of East 16th Street between Aug. 13 and 18.
"The guy had it in his out building, like a small shed, and he doesn't go to it every day so to speak, but during those dates he figured it went missing," said Cpl. Richard De Jong, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. "He noticed the gate was left unlocked at one point, so probably when he was gone during the day somebody came in and helped themselves to it."
He said because it was missing, there was not much for forensics to work with.
"He's very upset of course because its not cheap and he thinks maybe somebody saw he had it in his driveway," said De Jong. "Maybe somebody saw him start it up."
De Jong said the kart is worth around $6,000, is bright orange and black with a Maxtor motor. It also has a CRG Road Rebel decal and a large number five on the front. He said the owner had taken it out various times on different tracks.
"For someone who likes go-karts or just anything of that sort, it's quite appealing,"
said De Jong.
Go-karts are not legal to ride on public roadways and police are asking anyone with
information to call North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
