WEST KELOWNA - Brazen thieves made off with a nearly $300,000 prize this morning and a West Kelowna businessman is hoping you can help him get it back.

When Scott Horovatin showed up for work at his yard at 3 a.m., March 27, he found his 2014 Kenworth truck and 2008 Peerless lowbed trailer gone.

"You can tell they knew what they were looking for and knew what they were doing," he says. "To get out of our yard, you have to know how to drive."

He followed fresh tracks to the highway but lost the trail from there. It might look to the untrained eye like any other truck on the road, but Horovatin says it's a fairly unique combination. Key is the Horovatin logo on the side.

If you see the truck, you are asked to call RCMP Const. Rick Goodwin at 250-768-2880.
