RCMP recover stolen goods on rural property near Okanagan Falls

March 17, 2021 - 3:30 PM

A wayward ATV led police to a cache of stolen property near Okanagan Falls last weekend.

RCMP officers attended Okanagan Falls on a report of a suspicious ATV being driven onto a rural property on Green Lake Road around 11 p.m., March 14, according to an RCMP media release.

The ATV was located on the property and confirmed to have been stolen.

While there, police discovered several other items in plain sight, which were believed to have been stolen. The items included more than 100 keys belonging to various models of vehicles and heavy equipment.

A man associated with the property was discovered to have an outstanding warrant and was arrested.

"All of the seized property was removed from the property and officers will be making attempts to return them if possible," Penticton RCMP media relations officer Const. James Grandy said in the release. "We encourage everyone to remember to lock up their vehicles, take photographs and record serial numbers of their property."

Police often come across stolen property but without being able to confirm its ownership, they cannot seize it or arrest the person associated with it, he said.

“Our officers are continuing their investigation, and may be reaching out to the public to help identity and return these items to their rightful owners,” Grand said.

Anyone who witnesses anything suspicious or who might have information is asked to contact the Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300, or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
