$800K in boats stolen in Alberta
EDMONTON — Alberta RCMP are investigating the theft of a fleet of brightly coloured powerboats that were last seen being towed on trailers by pickups down a rural highway.
The four boats are all Nautique Super Air G23s — a craft popular with people who enjoy wakeboarding and wakesurfing.
Cpl. Laurel Scott said the thieves made off with the boats and trailers early Wednesday from a dealership south of Edmonton.
The boats and trailers are estimated to be worth $800,000. One of the boats is orange and black, another is green and black. Two are blue with white trim.
“What we are hoping now is that maybe someone who was out driving might remember seeing these boats,” Scott said Thursday. “You would think they would stand out.”
