Stolen items found on rural acreage
Dozens of allegedly-stolen items have been seized from a rural property north of Nukko Lake, Prince George RCMP said Thursday.
They include seven vehicles, five all-terrain vehicles, one dirt bike, one snow blade, eight generators, two compressors, a propane heater, a portable fuel storage tank, five loaded guns, ammunition, a crossbow, several power tools and a number of chainsaws.
The action came after a pickup truck was reported stolen on Monday morning. A subsequent investigation led RCMP to obtain a search warrant for a property on Moldowan Cutoff Road.
“All of these items are confirmed or believed to have been stolen,” said RCMP, who added that one of the vehicles had been stolen from Vanderhoof and another from Quesnel and that two of the ATVs were confirmed as stolen.
Six people were arrested but have not yet been charged and their names were not released. “The investigation is in the early stages,” RCMP added. “More details may be released as the investigation continues.” Efforts to identify the items’ owners is underway, RCMP said.
