A Department of Natural Resources helicopter later located a stolen truck at a property in nearby Upper Rawdon.

Both locations were multi-acre properties which contained multiple vehicles, vehicle parts and machine equipment,” police said in a news release Tuesday.

Police say a search warrant was executed on the properties over the course of three days. Officers recovered three stolen vehicles, two stolen trailers, stolen tools and a small quantity of drugs from one property, along with six stolen vehicles, a stolen mini-excavator, a small quality of drugs and computer equipment from another.

“A third search warrant was also executed at another location in Upper Rawdon resulting in another vehicle being seized,” police said in the new release.
