Police on the Sunshine Coast are reporting an odd theft that occurred last week.

RCMP say that between October 13th and 16th thieves stole a large amount of oysters and mussels from a commercial fish farm. The facility is located near 9 Mile Point in Sechelt Inlet.

Police say the people responsible would have had to have used a hydraulic hauler capable of pulling out the heavy lines of shellfish.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the detachment at 604 885 2266. The file remains under investigation.
