“North Bay is our home and we will not be defeated.”

Those words on social media from Arnstein Equipment after discovering Wednesday morning that 15 snowblowers had been stolen overnight.

They say their gates had been cut open.

The post goes on to say it’s a big financial hit, but also says “the show must go on”, and it’s business as usual today.

Officials also thank city police for all they’re doing to help.

North Bay Police report the snowblowers were still in boxes and unassembled.

Brands include 12 Airens and 3 Greenworks.

They have a combined value of about $30,000.

The investigation is continuing.

Police are asking anyone with information that may assist with this investigation to call the North Bay Police Service at 705-497-5555 and select option 9 to speak to a police officer.
