Snow and Twoyoungmen are scheduled to appear in court on March 27. House has a court appearance scheduled for April 3.

RCMP said officers came across the illegal operation while doing patrols in the area. They said the officers noticed a suspect sitting in a car with a stolen licence plate and as they were talking to the suspect, witnessed another stolen car drive onto the property.

Police said in a media release Friday that they have been working closely with other agencies to catch people responsible for auto thefts as “many suspects jump from jurisdiction to jurisdiction when committing crime.”
