NORTH Vancouver RCMP are looking for the owners of some industrial tools likely stolen from a parked vehicle or vehicles in recent months.
Mounties received a rash of reports about cars being broken into and ransacked between August and December. After an in-depth investigation into the spree, officers searched a North Vancouver home and arrested two suspects on Nov. 30.
Among the items seized that police would like to see returned to the rightful owners: a Belimo HVAC Actuator, orange in color, with "Mt. Currie" written on the box, a BW Technologies Gas Detector, and a Lemmer T-55 HVLP Turbine Spray System with two paint guns.
"Police recovered stolen property from this investigation that requires positive identification by the prospective owners," said Cpl. Richard De Jong, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. "With more property identified, police will be able to lay additional charges."
Nonnie Ross, 34, is facing two counts of theft, two counts of possession of stolen property and one count of trafficking in stolen property. Wade Nahanee, 32, is facing two charges of theft and two charges of possession of stolen property.
Anyone who may know the victim of the theft is asked to contact Const. Ken Alexander of the North Vancouver RCMP property crime unit at 604-969-7506.
