Law enforcement authorities are seeking information concerning recent thefts.

A snowmobile was stolen from the Big Buffalo Pawn Shop on U.S. 20-A in Delta during the night of Dec. 19 or early morning hours of Dec. 20. The snowmobile, a 2001 yellow Ski-Doo MXZ800, was locked to a wooden post by a cable which had been cut. The value of the snowmobile is unknown.

A Miller Construction tool trailer, parked at a site on County Road N west of County Road 16 in Lyons, was broken into between Nov. 26 and Dec. 1. Several items were taken from the locked trailer.

The total value of the missing items is $10,510.
