No leads on snowboard theft

A week after thieves made off with a car full of stolen goods from Porter’s Ski and Sports in Truckee, no firm leads have emerged in the case.

Eighteen snowboards and five parkas were stolen from the store in the after-hours break-in on Tuesday, Feb. 20.

At least two suspects pried open the back door of the ski and snowboard retail shop, located in the Crossroads Center, at 1:17 a.m., and made off with the boards and parkas in a very quick robbery.

An employee of Albertson’s heard the alarm and ran outside just in time to see a small sports utility vehicle drive away from the rear of Porter’s at a high rate of speed. No further description of the vehicle was available.

“I’m sure they scoped us out before they came in,” said Kathy Karlovic, a manager at Porter’s.

Authorities say the boards were likely stolen to be re-sold.

“With the quantity that was taken it is probably for resale,” said Nevada County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Gary Jacobson.

The investigation is continuing.

NCSO is requesting anyone with any information on the incident to call 582-7838.
