Seeking culprit who stole camera

"I am writing this letter in hopes of reaching out to the person who stole my trail camera."

I am writing this letter in hopes of reaching out to the person who stole my trail camera.

It was above Violin Lake, south of the power line, between Warfield and Rossland. It was taken between Oct. l3 to 16 and had been locked and chained to a tree.

My name was on the lock, so you know who I am. That camera was a retirement gift from my grandchildren.

The camera is GPS protected and I can find its location on my phone.

I have been away for awhile so could not track its location and will be soon.

If the person who took it wants to avoid being known you can leave the camera at the bottom of the stairs in the back of the Rossland drugstore. It is really sad you cannot trust your fellow outdoorsman. Maybe I should check on Kijiji or buy and sell to see who is selling trail cameras often.

The camera took some great pictures before it was taken and they are on my laptop.

A person on a blue Arctic Cat quad with a windshield and a factory box on the back, looked directly into the camera. He was wearing white and navy plaid jacket, brown hoodie and has a moustache.

His helmet has white decals on the top and sides, and he has yellow driving glasses on and black mitts with a tanned band across the knuckles.

He is the only person to have seen my camera, as far as I know. This person may have information as to what happened to the camera and our next step would be to put his photo up on Facebook to see if we can locate him.
