Police look to return stolen electrical equipment to owner

Police are looking to reunite someone with their missing tools.

On June 20, 2021 at 7 a.m., the Prince George RCMP received a report of some suspicious activity in Ochakwin Park. A resident in the area stated he saw a man on a bike pulling a trailer and inside the trailer appeared to be a boat motor.

Frontline members located the man in Ochakwin Park and their investigation led them to arrest the man for possession of stolen property. The officers located not only the boat motor but also some electrical testers and a handheld GPS unit inside the bike trailer. Police returned the boat motor to its rightful owner later that day.

“Police would like to reunite these tools with their proper owner. If you live in the Elkhorn area and can properly identify the tools by their make, model and, preferably, the serial number please contact investigators by calling 250-561-3300 so we can return them to you,” said Const. Jennifer Cooper of the Prince George RCMP.

Police released the man, a 39-year-old Prince George resident, with a future court date. The male is known to police.

This file is still under investigation.
