Romar PowerSports in Stettler sustained more than $20,000 in losses after motor machines were stolen and the building was damaged last week in two separate incidents, Stettler RCMP reported Monday.

Police continue to seek assistance in the recovery of three motorcycles that were stolen from the motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle and snowmobile dealer, located on 44 Avenue in the east-industrial area of Stettler.

“I’m just mad,” said company president Brad Mappin, who declined further comment.

Stettler RCMP Sgt. Duncan Babchuk reported that the first theft occurred Friday at about 1 a.m., when the culprits smashed the glass door to the front entrance and stole two dirt bikes — a 2013 Kawasaki KX450 and a 2012 Yamaha PW50.

“Both motorcycles were on display on the showroom floor at the time of the theft,” Babchuk said.

Then, at 6:05 a.m. Sunday, the front-entrance glass door was again smashed and a 2011 Kawasaki KX85 dirt bike was also stolen from the showroom area.

Investigators are also looking for a dark-blue 2009 Dodge Ram 2500 quad-cab pickup truck that was stolen from the Stettler industrial area late on Sept. 29, or early on Sept. 30.

“This truck may be related to the second break-in at Romar PowerSports,” Babchuk said.

Items that had been inside the truck were located in the Beiseker area.

Anyone with information related to those thefts is asked to phone Stettler RCMP at 403-742-3382 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
