Vehicles stolen last summer recovered by Kelowna RCMP

Boat, truck and flat deck trailer found on Beaverdell property.

More than $100,000 in vehicles that were stolen as far back as seven months ago have been recovered by police.

RCMP said Monday that members of the property crimes unit executed a search warrant on a Beaverdell property on Thursday and found a 28-foot Sea Ray boat, stolen from Kelowna in September 2010, and a 2008 Dodge Ram that had been taken from the property of a Kelowna resident back in August.

As well, police also found a 35-foot triple axle flat deck trailer, that is believed to have been stolen from Saskatchewan.

“The cumulative value [of the recovered items] is in excess of $100,000.” said Const. Steve Holmes.

A man, who police say is associated with the property that was searched, has been investigated and police are going to be forwarding a report to Crown counsel, recommending charges of theft over $5,000 against the man.
