THIS sluice box was stolen from a rural property near Terrace

Thieves made off with several large unique items from a property on St.Croix Creek east of Terrace between Chimdemash Creek and Legate Creek sometime during the last couple of weeks of April, report Terrace RCMP.

The property used to be an old settlement with several unique items on it. The entirety of stolen items would require several people to manoeuvre the items, knowledge of how to do it, and a truck with a hitch, says Constable Angela Rabut from the Terrace RCMP.

The items stolen were a Karavan mobile sluice plant valued at $4,000, a load of cedar lumber, and an antique Swedish saw.

If you have seen these items or have information on this crime contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at or by texting TERRACE plus your message to 274637 (CRIMES).

If your information leads to an arrest you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
