Four charged with possession of stolen property, trafficking
Four individuals, including a 40-year-old Carbonear man, a 36year-old man and a 23-year-old woman both from Harbour Grace, are facing charges of possession of property obtained by crime, trafficking and possession of a controlled substance.
The fourth accused, a 44-yearold Pouch Cove man, was arrested by Trinity Conception District RCMP after police found a quantity of stolen property and marijuana in his vehicle during a traffic stop in Harbour Grace in the early hours of Jan. 6.
RCMP Const. John Hedges said a subsequent police investigation led to the arrests of the other three.
“ Some of the stolen property recovered is associated with recent cabin break-ins in the area,” Const. Hedges noted.
All four defendants have been released from custody and will appear in Harbour Grace Provincial Court in March.
