The Fort St. James RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the person or persons responsible for the theft of a piece of heavy farm equipment near Fort St. James.

Sometime between May 1 and May 8, 2013, unidentified persons removed a ROME breaking disc, from the Pitka Forest Service Road, off of Highway 27, near Dog Creek, approximately 20 km South of Fort St. James, B.C.

The piece of equipment is faded yellow in colour, with the name ROME in black letters on the top,  approximately eight feet wide, with multiple large steel discs on it.

It appears as though the breaking disc was loaded onto a truck and trailer using a large front end loader and then driven away.
