The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) is looking for two tankless water heaters that were stolen from residences on Blossom Street Pass damaged by the explosion of February 13 in Orléans.
In a press release sent on Friday, the police indicate that the devices could have been damaged during the mischief and could represent a danger s 'they were installed in other buildings.
Persons in possession of these appliances may not be aware that they have been stolen, which is why no criminal prosecution will be opened by the police for their possession.
The back of a house was torn off by the explosion. (File photo)
The SPO is asking for the public's help in locating the two Rinnai model RU 160-182106 water heaters, which bear the numbers series: 21PE.BA-095999 and 21PE.BA-096017.
The suspect accused of breaking into two homes before removing the water heaters and opening the gas supply hose, Kody Crosby, incidentally, faces numerous counts filed by the OPS, including those of arson and criminal negligence.
