OSOYOOS - Two men will face charges following the theft of two ATVs and the attempted theft of a UTV as well as an attempted break and enter in the Anarchist Mountain area between Feb. 11 to 14.

A utility trailer was also taken from 62 Avenue according to an RCMP media release. They say property gates were damaged so the alleged thieves could gain access to the properties. 

Police recovered the 2012 and 2013 Honda ATVs and the stolen trailer Feb. 14 in Kamloops.

Waylon Faulhafer, 21, who is known to frequent Osoyoos according to Mounties, and another 26-year-old man from Kamloops were found in possession of the stolen items and arrested. Faulhafer is known to South Okanagan RCMP and was held in custody for court Feb. 16 in Kamloops. He was charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000. 

The second man appears in court Feb. 21. He faces the same charges.
