Stolen vehicle recovered; search for thief continues

Police have recovered a stolen Nissan Versa but are seeking the public’s help to identify the thief.

The abandoned car was reported by a Gibsons resident who noticed it parked in the Molly’s Lane area for several days before reading in Coast Reporter that it had been stolen from a residence on Fairway Avenue in Sechelt.

He called police after seeing that the B.C. licence plate number – 902WLL – matched the plate number of the stolen car.

Police have surveillance video but are looking for additional footage to help them identify the male suspect, Const. Karen Whitby said Monday.

Anyone in lower Gibsons with video shot from 5 to 7 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 24 of the 200 block of Gower Point Road, 400 block of Marine Drive, or Molly’s Lane is asked to contact police if they are able to make the footage available for review.

Police are also asking anyone who recalls picking up a male hitchhiker heading to the first ferry from Langdale on Saturday, Nov. 24 to contact the RCMP detachment.
