Saanich Police are investigating the theft of the mini excavator in the pictures. It was stolen from a work site on Obed Avenue on the night of the 21st January.
The Excavator is a yellow and black John Deere model 17D, it is 10 years old and has recently undergone some mechanical upgrades. The back hatch as pictured is absent and there are some rips to the seat.
The loss of machinery means the local company who own it are severely restricted with the work they can now carry out.
