Sorry to hear this Fred,

If you go visit your neighboring businesses across the street , they might very well have outdoor security cameras running.,..might help you out....

Not sure if you got a way to positively id  (serial numbers?) these machines or not....if ya do,maybe make a few dummy ads put them up on the local  Facebook marketplace in the lower mainland .....and on Kijiji.....  "wanting to buy a new  Garrett 300i or 400i for a Christmas cash deal" set the price lower than any dealers will be willing to match...you might get the idiots to bite.

What a bummer. I am new to the Kelowna region and popped into Fred's to get the lay of the land. He gave some great info and I'm looking forward to getting out there and getting dirty.
