The owner of an Île-des-Chênes ATV business is likely wishing a robbery on Tuesday was a bad April Fools’ Day joke.

Unfortunately, thieves made off with several quads and a 32-foot long snowmobile trailer from Adventure Power Products.

Manitoba RCMP are investigating the sophisticated theft to the fenced-in compound, which is surrounded by a dozen surveillance cameras.

Police say thieves made off with a Camo Quad 2014 Kawasaki Brute Force 750, a green 2014 Kawasaki Teryx 2 LE 800, and a black 2014 Kawasaki Teryx 2.

The suspects arrived to the yard in a stolen 2006 white Ford F-250 bearing Saskatchewan plates. The vehicle was stolen from Yorkton, SK on March 25 and has a “Saskatchewan Firefighter Training” decal on the back window and a firefighter crest on both the driver and passenger doors.

The suspects ditched a stolen 26-foot long trailer, also from Saskatchewan, at the scene of the robbery to hook up the longer trailer and make off with the equipment.

Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP at (204) 433-7908, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
