North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are searching for a pair of antique chainsaws stolen from the B.C. Forest Discovery Centre during an overnight break-and-enter on Sept. 8 or 9.
Taken were a 1958 McCulloch Super 44 and a 1962 McCulloch Mac 15. They are yellow with some rust and signs of wear.
“Both are very rare and part of our extensive and popular chainsaw exhibit collected over the years by the centre’s founder, Gerry Wellburn, and his son, Vern,” said centre manager Chris Gale. “They really have no value to anyone but a collector and we are unlikely to find replacements.”
Contact North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 240-748-5522 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) with any information.
