A raid on a residence in Morris, Man., resulted in a seizure of a large amount of stolen items for Manitoba RCMP, including more than 50 bicycles.

Police said they searched the Main Street home July 9 and found ammunition, a firearm, lawn equipment, power tools and the bikes. Counterfeit currency, stolen ID and personal documents, and a small amount of drugs were also seized.

The investigation determined that the two suspects — a 46-year-old man and 47-year-old woman, both from Morris — were linked to a number of area break-ins between May and July, and that some of the stolen property was being sold online.
