Police rent truck to recover stolen goods

By The Canadian Press

LANGLEY, B.C. - Mounties in Langley, B.C., say they were forced to rent a heavy-duty truck recently so they could recover more than 160 stolen goods from a home.

RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks says police executed a search warrant on the home of a prolific property offender in nearby Surrey this past March.

She says police seized more than 160 pieces and even recovered a 2002 Porsche Boxter that had been stolen in Surrey over the Valentine's Day weekend.

Officers spent the day filling a three-ton truck and Marks says they also filled two additional vehicles with the ill-gotten goods.

Marks says police have been able to return most of the items to their owners, including the Porsche Boxter, but some goods remain unclaimed and can be seen on the RCMP's website.

She says police are completing their report to Crown counsel and expect charges will be recommended against the unidentified 30-year-old woman.
