The Northeast District RCMP is hoping information from the public will help their ongoing investigation into the theft of an industrial diesel generator that was stolen from Strathadam, N.B., near the Natoaganeg First Nation (Eel-Ground First Nation).
On October 22, 2020, police received a report of a break, enter and theft of an industrial diesel generator at a decommissioned landfill on Route 425, in Strathadam. The incident is believed to have occurred sometime between April and October 22.
The generator is described as a Caterpillar D90P1 diesel generator with serial number YB50495*U716596F. It weighs approximately 2,800 pounds (1,260 kilograms) and measures approximately 98 inches (248 centimetres) long by 29 inches (74 centimetres) wide. It is approximately 56 inches (142 centimetres) tall. A picture of the generator is not available. It is a heavy piece of equipment that would have required a vehicle and flatbed trailer equipped with a winch or possibly a small lift system to transport.
Anyone with information about this theft, or who may have seen the generator being transported, is asked to contact the Blackville RCMP at 506-843-9400. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or www.crimenb.ca.
