Stolen car full of stolen stuff

Not only was the car stolen, but so was a lot of the stuff in it.

Salmon Arm Staff Sgt. Scott West said on Sept. 2 a member of the general public reported a suspicious vehicle in the 4000 block of Sunnybrae Canoe Pt. Road.

West said police found a male and female in the vehicle. Checks of the vehicle revealed it had been stolen from Logan Lake on Aug. 30.

Both were arrested and taken into custody.

“A search of the vehicle located a stolen TV, other stolen property along with a substantial quantity of cannabis,” said West.

The man and woman were determined to have given false names to police. When the correct names were checked, police learned the duo had extensive police involvement, most recently from Kamloops and Savona.

“The Salmon Arm RCMP has recommended charges against the two adults pertaining to property offences, failing to comply with court ordered conditions and obstructing the police by giving false names,” said West.

They are due to appear in court Tuesday in Salmon Arm.
