Seven people are facing charges after police in Brandon recovered a “large amount” of allegedly stolen property earlier this week.

On Wednesday, police say a man was seen moving various used tools, which officers believed were stolen.

He was subsequently arrested and the property seized.

Further investigation led police to obtain search warrants for two properties later that day, which is where the additional items were found.

Police say they included tools and power tools, along with more items believed to be stolen, however, officers will be following up to determine who owns what.

They have a court date in December.

One of the accused, a 44-year-old woman, was arrested on “outstanding charges” in addition to the possession charge and was to appear in court Thursday.

Police encourage the public to record the serial numbers on property they own, so it’s easier to be returned if it’s ever stolen.
