Police seize stolen goods in Hope

The RCMP needs the public’s help to identify the recovered items

Laine Albert Poulson is facing several charges after Hope RCMP recovered a number of stolen items in Silver Creek last week.

Police were investigating the theft of a Bobcat attachment and flatbed equipment trailer from Lismore Trailer Park. When they followed up with the 44-year-old suspect at Hope Valley Campground, they found a 2010, 26-foot Arctic Fox travel trailer on the property which was stolen from Agassiz in July.

“Experience shows that these guys don’t do one or two crimes,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “When they do these things, they’ll do as much as they can.”

Police seized many stolen items from the trailer including gardening tools, camping gear, and bicycles. They also found receipts for a storage unit in Hope, where they discovered a stolen pickup truck with stolen licence plates.

Poulson has been charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, two other counts of possession of stolen property, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and fleeing from a police officer.

The RCMP is looking for the public’s help in identifying the stolen items. Anyone with information is asked to call the local detachment at 604-869-7750.
