Two snowmobiles were stolen from a Vancouver couple, and now they're hoping surveillance video will help track down the thieves.
Carson Lushin and his wife live in a condo on Southeast Columbia River Drive.
They usually keep their Polaris snowmobiles locked up in an off-site garage, but since they were heading up to the mountain early on Sunday, they parked the snowmobile trailer on the street for one night.
At about 8:30 a.m., Lushin and his wife noticed that their two-wheel trailer and the snowmobiles were gone.
Lushin checked his building's surveillance video and saw someone drive by a few times and then finally cut the trailer bolt and take off with it at 5:45 a.m.
Lushin has lived in the area for three years and in that time, he says the crime rate has gone way up.
"I don't feel very safe, I'll say that. It's been an ongoing issue at least for the last two years. We've had theft and break-ins, et cetera," Lushin said. "The area is just not very well patrolled in my opinion."
Lushin filed a police report but he is also offering a $2,000 reward to anyone who can find his snowmobiles.
If you have a tip, call Vancouver police.
