Search of truck reveals break-and-entry tools, suspected meth

A Parksville man has been arrested after driving a stolen truck taken from the Comox Valley.

Oceanside RCMP located the pickup truck and a suspicious driver on Martindale Road in Parksville on Thursday, Sept. 21 at 9:55 a.m., said Cpl. Jesse Foreman in a news release.

“Upon investigation it was determined the truck had been stolen out of the Comox Valley in late July,” he said.

The driver, a 26-year-old man from Parksville, was arrested. After a search of the truck, break-and-entry tools, suspected stolen tools, knives, a pellet gun and suspected methamphetamine were seized, Foreman said.

The man was later released on a Promise to Appear in Nanaimo Provincial Court on Dec. 12, with police recommending several charges.
