Police recover stolen property in Parksville Qualicum Beach

Recovered items include two motorcycles and a generator

A substantial amount of stolen property — including two motorcycles, a cargo trailer and a power generator — were recovered by RCMP and returned to owners this week after Oceanside RCMP arrested a pair of “prolific offenders.”

The two accused men, a 26-year-old and a 23-year-old, both of Errington, were taken into custody Tuesday and Wednesday by members of the Oceanside RCMP General Investigation Section and Crime Reduction Unit, the detachment announced Thursday afternoon.

“Prolific offenders are a priority for the Oceanside detachment,” Staff Sgt. Marc Pelletier said. “Statistics show that a small number of prolific offenders commit the majority of crime. Therefore, we need to focus our policing efforts on those individuals to reduce crime in our community.”

The two suspects were also found to be in breach of court-ordered conditions at the time of their arrest. They are expected to be charged on several counts each, including resisting arrest and possession of stolen property.
