Nanaimo Mounties grab suspects and stolen goods

RCMP arrest three suspects and recover stolen property at a home in central Nanaimo.

Bikes, computers and car parts were among the stolen items netted when Mounties searched a residence in central Nanaimo Thursday.

Police moved in on the residence on Lorne Place, in the hospital area, at about 4 p.m. Thursday.

One man, 27, and two women, 27 and 25, were arrested in the home.

Police seized computer towers, three laptops, eight USB memory sticks, personal credit card data and identification from a variety of people. Mounties also found high-end mountain bikes, four truck tires, rims and a small amount of marijuana and crystal methamphetamine.

The mountain bikes, estimated at over $3000 dollars each, were stolen just days prior from a home on Rosehill Street.

The male suspect was held in custody and is scheduled to appear in Nanaimo provincial court to face charges of possession of stolen property today (Dec. 16).

Both women face recommended charges of possession of stolen property and were released on promises to appear in Nanaimo provincial court March 13.

Const. Gary O’Brien Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said the residence is known to police.

“It’s been on our radar for some time,” O’Brien said.
