Two Horne Lake residents were arrested May 27 in relation to stolen goods in the Parksville Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo region, according to police.

A news release issued by Oceanside RCMP says police were led to a residence in the Horne Lake area after “several tips from the public.”

Members of the Oceanside RCMP Crime Reduction Unit and General Investigation Section executed a search warrant on the residence located in the 300 block of Horne Lake Road in Qualicum Beach.

The release said RCMP “had reason to believe there was stolen property being housed at the residence.”

Police said stolen property was located and seized from the residence, which led to the arrest of a 29-year-old female and 27-year-old male resident of the address.

Police recommended charges of Possession of Stolen Property to Crown Counsel.
