Some of the property stolen from the recent Break and Enters in the Johnson’s Landing area has now been recovered. Kaslo RCMP are crediting a sharp-eyed local citizen with pointing them in the right direction.
Kaslo Detachment Commander, Corporal Shaun Begg, says that a local resident, travelling near Fussey’s Corner, about 100 meters east of Highway 31, noticed a Toro lawn tractor, a snow plow, Table saw, various other hand tools and other equipment related to the recent break and enters, piled neatly at the side of the roadway. This location is about 18 km away from the original site of the Break and Enter.
The RCMP press release states: 'It is often said that the local citizens are the 'eyes and ears' for the Police. This is certainly true in this case. Special thanks to the citizen for coming forward.'
"Perhaps it was a case of a guilty conscience at work," said Corporal Begg, referring to the criminals disposing of the stolen goods. "In any event it is nice to be able to return at least some of the property to the victimized property owners."
No arrests have been made, but the RCMP investigation is continuing.
RCMP continue to seek the public's assistance in this investigation. Anyone having knowledge of this incident are asked to please contact the Kaslo RCMP at (250) 353-2225 or CRIME STOPPERS at 1-800-222-8477. Callers to CRIME STOPPERS remain Anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.
