A man will face charges in Nanaimo court after he was arrested driving a stolen truck with break-and-entry tools, knives and drugs inside.
A 26-year-old man was arrested in Parksville driving a vehicle that had been stolen in the Comox Valley.
Oceanside RCMP located the pickup truck and a suspicious driver on Martindale Road on Thursday at about 10 a.m., according to an RCMP news release.
After a search of the truck, break-and-entry tools, suspected stolen tools, knives, a pellet gun and suspected methamphetamine were seized, said Cpl. Jesse Foreman, Oceanside RCMP spokesman, in the press release.
The driver, who is from Parksville, was later released on a promise to appear in Nanaimo provincial court on Dec. 12, with police recommending several charges.
