Those members intended to do some late season trail work on the Naughton trails; however, thieves stole the club's Arctic Cat ATV and a new Echo chainsaw.
While the ATV was insured, the chainsaw was not and was a loss. The loss of this equipment is s significant setback for the non-profit club as they will have to absorb the insurance deductible, higher insurance costs and must replace the saw at their own expense, said St. Marseille. The Walden Mountain Bike club will also have to put several trail projects on hold as it prepares for the Canada Cup MTB event next July.
Anyone who may have information about the crime is asked to call police or CrimeStoppers.
