Mountain of stolen pet food

RCMP in Chase were able to sniff out a large cache of stolen dog food.

Cpl. Scott Linklater said on July 12, Chase RCMP Detachment executed another search warrant at a rural property in the 4000 block of Leopold Road near Scotch Creek, recovering a large amount of stolen dog food.

“During the previous search on June 21, police noted a suspiciously large amount of Acana and Orijen brand dog and cat food on the property. In the following days, investigators determined the pet food was related to a theft reported to the Delta Police Department in April of 2019,” said Linkater. “Hundreds of bags of dog and cat food were recovered during the search with a total value of $12,700.”

Linklater said no charges have been laid in the case of the stolen pet food at this time and the investigation is ongoing.

A report to BC Prosecution Services will be submitted for consideration of applicable charges.

The June 21 search of the same property netted police a bounty of prohibited weapons including fully automatic rifles.

“During the search, police located several vehicles that were confirmed stolen or had the vehicle identification numbers purposefully removed. Vehicles with the VIN removed were seized for further inspection to determine their origin,” Linklater said at the time of the raid.

Police also found numerous firearms, several of which were found to be prohibited, including a Norinco Mak-90 fully automatic rifle, a Sterling Mark 4 Sub Machine gun, a Smith & Wesson revolver with a ground off serial number and a drum magazine, and a firearm fitted within a small suitcase.

A mechanism was fashioned so a person holding the suitcase handle could activate a lever that would pull the trigger, shooting the firearm.
