$1.5M in stolen property found in Calgary storage facilities

WATCH: Calgary police have charged one man in one of the city's largest seizures of stolen property.


CALGARY – Police have laid charges in the theft of over $1.5 million worth of items found in storage facilities throughout Calgary.

Among the stolen goods are a tanning bed and tanning supplies, artwork, video games, a used vehicle, clothing, new and used tires, snow blowers and a log splitter.

Investigators said a lot of the property was brand new and still in its original packaging, and likely taken from various retailers throughout the city.

β€œIt is believed that half of the property was stolen over the span of roughly 18 months, with the remainder acquired through organized retail crime offenses,” said police in a Thursday news release.

Efforts are underway to return the recovered items to the property owners.

Cody William Scott, 28, is facing multiple counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
