Close to a dozen valuable items, ranging from an ATV to a wood stove, were recently stolen from an empty home near the Mendenhall subdivision.

The property owners, gone between Jan. 12-22, were away breaking trail for the Yukon Quest, according to RCMP Cpl. Natasha Dunmall.

The thieves also made off with a snowmobile, a wall tent, a chainsaw, elk antlers, blankets and snowshoes.

The crime was reported to police on Jan. 26.

The thieves managed to gain entry to the property by damaging a driveway gate and the door to the residence.

“This type of theft would have taken time, and quite possibly more than one suspect,” said Dunmall in a news release.

“It was not a smash and run, as large, cumbersome items were taken.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Whitehorse RCMP at 867-667-5551.
