Police say the two vessels were stolen last week from an underground parking facility on Riverside Drive.
Both were ski boats: a 2014 black-and-white Campion that is 20 feet in length with an attached tower, the other a 2005 blue-and-white Malibu that is 21 feet in length, also with an attached tower.
The Campion was reported stolen on Friday, Nov. 22, while the Malibu was reported stolen on Saturday, Nov. 23.

“In both cases, the person or persons responsible for the thefts entered the secure parking garage by entering the security code to open the overhead garage doors,” said RCMP Sgt. Murray McNeil.
“An image taken from video surveillance seized by our investigators, captured on Friday, Nov. 22, shows the stolen Campion vessel being towed away by a dark-colored SUV southbound along Highway 97A, in the Mara area. The vehicle was displaying a stolen license plate.”
