File # 2017-9990
On November 1, a search warrant was executed by the Oceanside RCMP in the 800 block of Hilliers Road South, in Qualicum Beach. A 47 year old man from Qualicum Beach was arrested the day prior for being in possession of a stolen vehicle on the same property. Upon arrest, there were other suspicious vehicles on the property. This prompted RCMP officers to apply for Judicial Authorization in order to search the property further.
As a result of the search, 3 stolen vehicles, a stolen utility trailer, a stolen dirt bike, and a stolen RV were seized off the rural acreage and will be returned to the rightful owners.
The 47 year old male has been released on a Promise to Appear in court in Nanaimo in February 2018.
Another suspect who is well known to police for auto theft has been identified with respect to his involvement, and a warrant will be sought for his arrest.
This is a great example of the officers taking the investigation a step further. Acquiring further information in order to get stolen property back to the rightful owners is a very positive outcome. - States Cpl. Foreman
