Tips lead to recovery of stolen property

The Oliver RCMP found a local woman who was reported missing after going for a walk near a section of irrigation canal on June. 25.

The Oliver RCMP are praising two individuals who reported suspicious activity that led to the recovery of freshly stolen property today.

In the morning hours of June 22, police received two separate reports of suspicious occurrences, one involving an ATV and the other a dump truck.

Corporal Christina Tarasoff said police attended to both calls and upon investigation discovered that the ATV and dump truck had been stolen in Oliver sometime overnight.

“Police contacted both owners, who were not yet aware of the thefts, and were able to return the stolen items back to them,” Tarasoff said.

She noted that police would like to thank both people for calling in the suspicious activity. “Having the community engaged like this is so important and is appreciated by the Oliver RCMP.”

Tarasoff said they would also like to thank the residents who attended the safety forum on June 19.

“Many important topics were discussed and it was a good opportunity for us to make meaningful connections within our community.”
