Frontline officers in Burns Lake executed a search warrant this past weekend and recovered property which had allegedly been stolen. 

After receiving information that a resident was hiding stolen goods at a property in the 25000-block of Amendt Road in Southside, officers obtained and executed a search warrant this past weekend and recovered goods including; an ATV, a dump trailer, a Bobcat skid steer, a flat deck trailer, a lawn mower, a travel trailer and a van, which have allegedly been stolen.

Two men, a 44-year-old from Grassy Plains and a 48-year-old from Prince George were arrested and have since been released, pending the outcome of the investigation. The results of the investigation will be submitted to the BC Prosecution Service for determination of appropriate charges.

We have identified a number of items as stolen and are working to return them to the rightful owners, however we believe there may be additional items which have not been reported stolen or perhaps information is incomplete when it comes to ownership, thus not allowing us to be able to confirm whether or not they are in fact are stolen. We are reminding the public to document your valuable possessions, including VIN or other identifying numbers for all non-licensed vehicles/property, so if you are the victim of a theft they can be properly tracked, states Cpl. Michael Young of the Burns Lake Detachment.

We understand there are rumours circulating through social media which claim that bodies have been recovered at this site, these rumours are not accurate. Only people alive and well were located on the property, including the two men who were arrested.
