It’s enough propane to feed an army of people for any
summertime barbecue.

Halifax RCMP is investigating the robbery of 95, 20-pound
propane tanks from the Irving station on the 5,000 block of the St. Margaret’s
Bay Road.

The theft is believed to have taken place sometime after 8
p.m. Monday when a cage storing the tanks was locked for the night. Police say
store employees discovered the theft Tuesday morning when the cage was open and
the two locks securing them cut off.

“We usually don’t get too many thefts like this,” RCMP
spokesman Cpl. Joe Taplin said Wednesday. “It’s kind of out of the ordinary as
far as thefts go.”

Taplin said they would be looking at security tapes in and
around the area to try and gather more information. As of right now, there are
no suspects.

“We believe it would have taken more than one person to pull
this off,” said Taplin, adding either a van or truck was probably used in the
robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to the call the RCMP,
Halifax Regional Police or Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477.
