RCMP have recovered “tens of thousands of dollars worth of property” following a raid on a “known problem” residence in Bridesville, Mounties are reporting.
Officers with the Midway and Osoyoos RCMP detachments raided the Alden Road property March 4. They found a camper van, numerous high end power tools, a large tow-behind rental generator (this item alone is believed to be worth approximately $50,000) and a motorcycle registered in Washington State.
While en-route, Osoyoos RCMP also recovered a tow-behind generator/light tower also worth several thousand dollars which is believed to have been destined for the same property.
All items are believed to have been stolen in recent days from Midway, Penticton, and Osoyoos BC.
As the investigation is ongoing and no charges have yet been laid, RCMP are not releasing the names of persons detained at the scene.
Residents in rural areas are reminded to remain vigilant and report suspicious activity to their local RCMP.
If anyone has any information related to these investigations, they are encouraged to call the Osoyoos RCMP at 250-495-7236 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS.
