Whitehorse RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying and locating the suspects who broke into Cobalt Construction’s premises.

Over three nights – Dec. 28-30 – several suspects, using a stolen vehicle, entered the yard of Cobalt Construction and stole tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of property, police said Thursday afternoon.

The premises are located off the Alaska Highway just north of Crestview.

The vehicle involved is a beige 2009 Toyota Camry, with licence plate HML 66.

Police have located video footage of three male suspects at the site and in possession of the stolen car.

Suspect one is described as approximately five feet, nine inches to five feet, 11 inches tall wearing a black “Nike” hoodie, brown pants and black shoes.

The second suspect is of similar height, wearing a grey puffer jacket and black pants.

Suspect three is described as the same height, clad in a red, blue and black jacket and a black toque.

If you have any information about this or any other crime, please call the RCMP at 667-5572.

If you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers via phone at 667-6715 or online. You do not need to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers, and may be eligible for a cash reward.

@ Yukoner
Go back and watch some more Matlock, your criminal investigative techniques are duller than a beach ball.
The police are asking for the identity of people, nothing more. Believe me, they know a lot more about this crime than you need to know.

@Karma,
Get real you keyboard crusader. Cobalt is one of the largest private sector employers and better paying ones in the territory.
I know about GHV, who by the way we’re the largest employers in the Yukon. Rudolph has put food on the table and roofs over a great many Yukoners. Mine included.
Have respect.

I hope there is a list of stolen items being made available to the pawn shops. Better yet make the list public for all of us who get approached to buy items in the parking lots of the malls and liquor store.
