MacKay's Ice Cream fell victim to theft over the weekend with a catalytic converter stolen from their company-branded truck.
The theft took place at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 11 on River Avenue in Cochrane.
MacKay's Owner, Mark Tayfel says that this isn’t the first time this has happened.
"It's disappointing and it's not the first time this has happened," explains Tayfel. "It happened to us almost two years ago, so there was a lot of damage and expense."
Tayfel says they did take some proactive measures after the first theft occurred.
"After the last time it happened, we installed surveillance cameras and put up signs but it obviously still wasn't a deterrent for these guys.”
Deterrent or not, the surveillance videos captured two men in the act. The suspects were driving what appears to be a dark grey 2011 Honda Civic Si with distinctive custom rims.
In the video footage, the first male suspect can be seen wearing a light sweater, blue jeans, baseball cap, surgical face mask and light sneakers. The second male was dressed from head to toe in dark clothing, including a baseball cap and a face covering.
Tayfel says that the local business has already incurred additional expenses for PPE and this recent theft will set them back even more.
Video footage is below and anyone with any information regarding this crime is asked to contact the Cochrane RCMP.
