Dec 10, 2012 / 6:56 pm
More than 100 charges have been laid against four people after police on southern Vancouver Island uncovered a treasure trove of stolen property.
A regional police crime unit focused on two men that police say are prolific offenders and obtained search warrants for their homes.
Officers found laptops, iPods, GPS devices, cameras, jewelry, wallets, purses, personal documents and many other stolen items from towns all over southern Vancouver Island.
The crime unit believes many of the items were taken during vehicle break-ins.
Twenty-six-year-old Derek Fast faces the most charges at 46 counts, although his girlfriend, 27-year-old Tannya Barns, isn't far behind at 28 charges.
The second man charged is Robert Iverson, who is accused of 28 counts of theft, possession of stolen property and firearms-related offences, while his girlfriend, Jennifer Herman, faces eight charges, including breach of probation.
