RCMP in North Saanich say a backpack containing video footage of a skydiving accident was stolen from the Swartz Bay Ferry terminal on Friday night.
Police have released pictures and video footage of a suspect that allegedly grabbed the backpack from the checked luggage carousel at around 8:45 pm.
The bag contained among other things, a GoPro video camera that shows a serious parachuting accident last year.
Police say it belongs to Tyler Turner who is currently recovering from his injuries at a hospital in Vancouver.
B.C. Ferries also released a statement saying they are assisting in the police investigation.
Anyone with information on the theft or the identity of the witnesses is asked to call Sidney/North Saanich RCMP at 250-656-3931.
