UPDATE: Stolen property returned
Lake Country RCMP is thanking the media for their assistance and the general public for their tip information.
In record time, a Coldstream resident contacted the Lake Country RCMP Detachment less than an hour after police turned to the public for their help.
The Coldstream resident has now been identified by police as the rightful owner of the items found on July 2.
Both the investigator and complainant’s suspicions were right, the property which contained children’s items had been dumped from a stolen vehicle.
That Ford SUV had been reported to North Okanagan RCMP as taken sometime overnight.
The stolen vehicle has since been recovered by RCMP in the North Okanagan and remains part of their ongoing investigation.
