A report of a burning vehicle lead police to discover stolen property valued at over $20 000.

On November 29, 2023 at 9am a man reported a motorhome fully engulfed in flames near the Dondaneau Creek forest service road off Skimikin Lake Rd, north of the Skimikin transfer station. Salmon Arm RCMP members attended and located the burning motorhome, as well as other trailers and vehicles. Queries on the unrelated vehicles resulted in the recovery of one stolen truck out of Williams Lake from several months ago. Police noted items in the rear of the truck and surrounding area were suspected to be stolen.

Around the same time, police received a report of a theft from a storage container in Salmon Arm that had been emptied out. Tools and other machinery were stolen. Police were able to establish the majority of the items stolen from the storage container, were located in the rear of the stolen truck and surrounding area. Police estimate the total value of all the recovered property to be over $20 000.

The majority of the stolen items were returned to their rightful owner.
