The second of two vehicles stolen from Geo-Tech Industries in Crofton on Feb. 18 has been recovered.
Geo-Tech Industries manager Bob Foldy noted the $15,000 2013 Ford pick-up was discovered in Chemainus at the Country Maples RV Resort on the Trans Canada Highway.
“One of our supervisors was driving to Nanaimo to look at a job and happened to see it parked at Country Maples campground in the driveway.”
It had been left by two guys, who talked to a woman at the campground, and left a note saying they were coming back with a tow truck in three to four hours.
That just leaves $15,000 in stolen tools still unaccounted for with the second truck being found.
Foldy said the Ford was dusted for prints at the Nanaimo RCMP investigation garage, but none were found.
“They said it was professionally wiped down.”
Foldy said there was some damage to the gas filler on the vehicle that needs repair.
Geo-Tech’s compound is located close to the Catalyst Paper Excellence mill in Crofton.
