Someone Walked Away With $85,000 Worth Of Coquitlam Surveyor's Gear

  • Someone Walked Away With $85,000 Worth Of Coquitlam Surveyor's Gear

On February 7, 2020, just after 10:00 a.m., a Coquitlam surveyor had that horrible feeling when they realized that they’d left two cases of surveying equipment in the 900 block of Quadling Avenue in the Maillardville area. By the time they got back to the area, the equipment was gone.


We have excellent photos of the equipment along with the serial numbers, so there is hope that we will get this equipment back, says Corporal Michael McLaughlin with Coquitlam RCMP. This equipment is very specialized and the market is limited.


If enough people know these items are stolen then they will be really difficult to sell and perhaps we can get them back to their original owner where they belong.


The photos attached to this news release closely resemble the stolen items. They include:


A Leica Viva TS16 total station, green with a white handle and in a bright red case: Serial number (SN) 3010318,

A Leica Viva GS16 GNSS receiver, a round, flat, black and white device (in a bright red case): SN 3248216,

A Leica CS20 field controller (looks like a handheld computer in a figure-eight shape) in a bright red case: SN 2421321.


The combined value for these items is between $75,000 and $85,000. Coquitlam RCMP would like to get these tools back to their owners so they can continue to use them for their livelihood.


If you have seen any of this stolen equipment, call the Coquitlam RCMP non-emergency number and quote file number 2020-3521. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or go their website at www.solvecrime.ca.
