Over the weekend, $15,000 worth of stolen property was recovered by Slocan Lake and Nakusp RCMP.

A suspicious vehicle was reported to police on Sunday (Dec. 17) morning near Silverton. The Slocan Lake and Nakusp RCMP were on the lookout for the truck, that had gone missing a few weeks earlier in the Burton area and hadn’t been recovered. The caller told police they thought the suspicious vehicle they spotted might have been the missing vehicle.

After a thorough canvassing of the areas, RCMP located the truck travelling north on Highway 6.

Upon spotting the truck, the RCMP stopped it at Summit Lake with one man, and three women inside along with more than $15,000 worth of stolen property.

The individuals in the car were arrested with charges of possession of stolen property. The vehicle occupants were later released with conditions that they appear in court at a later date.

The property in the vehicle included chainsaws and an e-bike that had been stolen less than two days prior. RCMP were able to identify the owners of the saws and bike and said the items would be returned to them by Christmas.

Nakusp and Slocan Lake RCMP detachment commander, Cpl. Thomas Gill commended the residents in the valley for their help in locating the missing vehicle and stolen goods.

“The engagement and support of the citizens throughout the valley were instrumental in locating this stolen vehicle and property,” said Gill.
