Kelowna RCMP raided a rural property off Postill Lake Road on Monday and arrested two men who face numerous charges, including theft of property worth more than $5,000.

Police recovered two all-terrain vehicles, a pickup truck, a flat deck trailer and an excavator on Monday, Jan. 6, according to an RCMP media release. Together they are worth more than $100,000. They were stolen recently in the Kelowna and Salmon Arm areas.

Christopher Brazeau, 38, and 27 year-old Paul Floer were arrested without incident, police say.

“This investigation highlights the dedication of the Kelowna Street Enforcement Unit and their persistence in identifying and charging property crime offenders,” Cpl. Guillaume Tanguay of the Kelowna Target Team said in the release. “It also emphasizes the importance of the public reporting all crimes to police”.
