    Essex OPP are investigating the theft of two snowmobiles from a residence in the 500 block of Lypps Beach in Essex, sometime in the early morning hours of Saturday December 1st.

    Police say that the snowmobiles were contained in an enclosed trailer, which was recovered the following morning, minus the sleds. The first stolen snowmobile is a yellow 2001 Skidoo. The second is a 2008 Yamaha, white, black and red in colour.   They are both pictured above.   The sleds are valued in excess of $5000.
