Stolen items found on ru­ral acreage

The Prince George Citizen - - Local -

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.
