‘Pretty ballsy’: Video captures thieves using truck to tear entrance off Mission business

A Mission, B.C. business owner is venting his frustration after thieves targeted his business twice in less than a week, making off with about $50,000 in outdoor power equipment.

What’s more, the group of thieves — who appear to be the same people — did significant damage to the building.

Both incidents targeting Prospect Equipment at 33320 Glasgow Avenue were captured on high-quality security video.

Owner Pascal Deissner said the first incident happened early in the morning of Sat. Nov. 9, when the theives, armed with a stolen pickup truck, pulled the metal gate off the business, smashed the glass, and made off with about $12,000 worth of goods.

“A number of generators, water pumps, chainsaws … all handheld outdoor power equipment,” he said.

The crew was decked out in dark clothing and wearing distinctive black and white masks.

Deissner made repairs to the business’ entry, but just days later, on Fri. Nov. 15, the thieves were back with another stolen truck, this time using it to gain entry.
