Snowsleds stolen from Houlton business

By Jen Lynds, BDN Staff

HOULTON, Maine — A Houlton business is appealing to the public to help them find two snowsleds that were stolen early Sunday morning.

The sleds were stolen from Powersports and RVs on North Street sometime in the early morning hours.

The business was closed over the weekend, and Ben Adams, who manages the store, said he did not notice the sleds were missing until he arrived at the store early Monday morning to plow.

Store employees quickly discovered that images of the thieves had been captured on the store’s surveillance cameras. They said it seemed likely the same two people took both sleds.

The first sled is a black 2007 F1000 and the second is an orange 2008 Crossfire 1000 SP. Both are used.

Adams said the video showed that both of the perpetrators were suited up and it appeared that one was wearing a Carhartt jacket and a blue and white motocross-style helmet.

The other was fully suited in black with a black full-face helmet, he said.

Adams said the store is offering a $500 reward to anyone who provides information leading to the culprits and for the return of the sleds.

Officer Jared Sylvia of the Houlton Police Department said police have leads but have not recovered the sleds.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Houlton Police Department at 532-2287.
