Guns stolen in Gibsons break-in

Thieves targeted Buck Fever, the sporting goods store on North Road in Gibsons, during a break-in around 4 am on Saturday May 16. Suspects forced their way into the premises and caused extensive damage, gaining access to firearms securely stored inside. Multiple firearms were stolen, including both handguns and long guns.

Sunshine Coast RCMP are examining surveillance footage and suspect descriptions, and are taking the break-in very seriously. The fact that firearms were targeted and stolen is very concerning, and presents a real danger to public and police safety, said Cst Harrison Mohr with Sunshine Coast RCMP. When firearms are stolen, it is often for the purpose of using them to commit another crime, rather than for the monetary value of the guns.

Sunshine Coast RCMP are asking for the public’s help in the investigation. Anyone who was in the area of North Road early Saturday morning is asked to call police if they saw anyone or any vehicles that looked out of place.
Additionally, if you have other information that could help police identify the suspects or locate the firearms, please get in touch with us. We don’t want to see anyone get hurt by these stolen firearms.

People with information can speak with the Sunshine Coast RCMP’s General Investigation Section at (604) 885-2266, or can remain anonymous and call Crimestoppers, at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
