NHL net stolen from Castleton rink
Sometime on Tuesday, Feb. 5, Northumberland OPP were informed of a theft of a distinct hockey net from the Community Recreational Park on Cemetery Road in Castleton.
A witness observed a dark blue or black small pickup truck drive past his residence at approximately 11 p.m. on Pine Street with what he believed was a hockey net from the Community Park. The witness went to the park ice rink area and confirmed the theft and contacted OPP.
An investigation was conducted and it was determined that a vehicle had entered the park and a Riley Manufacturing, 44 inch goal frame with 6 millimetre netting, red and white in colour hockey net was stolen. It was reported to OPP this is not something that a person would typically go out to purchase for a driveway or backyard.
The invoiced value of the net is $1,050. There were two nets left at the rink.
OPP are continuing to investigate.
The Castleton Sports Club is a community volunteer organization and raised funds to purchase a pair of regulation sized hockey nets for the community park ice rink from community donations.
Anyone with information about this theft or the whereabouts of this item is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or the local Brighton detachment at 1-613-475-1313.
