Alberta RCMP recovered half-a-million-dollars worth of stolen property east of Calgary this week, according to a news release issued Friday.
On June 3 and 4, Strathmore RCMP, Gleichen RCMP and the RCMP Southern Alberta Auto Theft Unit executed search warrants at a property east of Strathmore.
Police said they recovered stolen property — including several vehicles, trailers, industrial equipment and guns — with an estimated value of $500,000.
RCMP charged a 60-year-old Wheatland County resident with firearms and property-related offences.
Police did not identify the suspect, only saying that the individual is in custody.
RCMP said they are tracking down the stolen items’ owners as the investigation continues.
