Sask. rancher pleads guilty after $1.2M in stolen property seized
A Saskatchewan rancher has pleaded guilty to possession of stolen property after police seized over a million dollars worth of stolen farm equipment last year.
Iain Stables, 39, was originally facing 29 charges. He pleaded guilty to 18 of those charges on Monday.
The charges stem from a search at a rural property near Donovan, Sask., in February 2016.
Police seized $1.2 million, worth of goods, including tractors, balers and trucks stolen from both private owners and dealerships in the province.
The case has been proceeding through the mental health strategy docket at Saskatoon provincial court.
His sentencing is scheduled to take place on Sept. 25.
