A Polaris Sportsman quad vehicle in excellent condition has been recovered by police and is awaiting its owner to claim it.

The 500-horsepower unit, believed to be a 2006-2008 model was seemingly abandoned on Koksilah Road. Mounties picked it up while on patrol back in August.

“Numerous inquiries have been conducted in an effort to locate the lawful owner but no luck to date,” according to a press release issued by North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment spokesperson Cpl. Krista Hobday.

“We need the caller to be able to describe their property, whether it’s this quad or any other missing/recovered property,” Hobday added.

She said the vehicle has other defining characteristics that the owner would likely be able to cite in order to be reunited with their property.

Anyone missing a quad is asked to contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522.
