Quad trails shot down by thieves

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Staff Stanstead

Sea­son’s over for the four wheel­ers as some farm­ers have re­quested that the trails, which go through their prop­er­ties, be closed for the re­main­der of the year. Thieves, us­ing the trails, have stolen sug­ar­ing equip­ment, val­ued at over $1,000, go­ing so far as to re­place the bolts and nuts of the gate that they had opened to do their deed.

Ob­vi­ously, the vol­un­teers who give count­less hours and pay their own ex­penses to main­tain the trail are mad and are ask­ing any­one who has in­for­ma­tion on this to call the po­lice. A prompt res­o­lu­tion of the mat­ter would go a long way in in­sur­ing that fur­ther sea­sons of mo­tor­ing by quads will be pos­si­ble.
