Local Detachments Work Together On Theft Bust

RCMP in Salmon Arm and Chase worked together this week to recover a stolen U-Hual, and ATV.

It began with a call about an ATV with a punched ignition found in a ditch near Notch Hill.

An investigation led Police to believe that the culprit may have been driving an F-350, and U-Haul Van.

The U-Haul Van was later found in Chase, and the male driver was arrested.

Police say that the U-Haul had been stolen out of Kelowna, but note they never did find the F-350, which is also believed to have been stolen.

The detained male was found to have the ATV's ignition in his pocket.

The ATV was later returned to its owner in Blind Bay.
