Airplane propeller swiped: Squamish Airport, British Columbia, Canada

Squamish  Royal Canadian Mounted Police are investigating the theft of an airplane propeller from the Squamish Airport last week.

Last Tuesday (Sept. 17), police received a report of a propeller having been stolen from a Piper Cherokee while the aircraft was parked at the airport sometime between Monday (Sept. 16) and Sept. 17 at 1 p.m., RCMP Sgt. Wayne Pride wrote in a statement.

No other aircraft were targeted. The propeller, valued around $5,000, was a Sensenich 74DM6-0-60 model, silver/grey, with a maroon-colored spinner (base).

A white pickup truck with a crew cab that wasn’t familiar to those at the airport was seen in the area on the morning of Sept. 16. Police are following up on that tip, but it’s not known whether the truck is related to the theft.
