Social media leads police to recovery of stolen property

Aided by social media, an intrepid Prince George RCMP officer recovered some stolen property on Sunday.

The officer came across a post about a suspicious camp next to Shesta Lake, off the Blackwater Road, and recognized a pickup truck in the photos as stolen.

The officer drove out and found the camp. No one was there but was able to confirm the pickup had gone missing from nearby Clear Lake Road that morning.

As well, a tent trailer reported stolen from a Quaw Avenue home on June 16 as found and was in the process of being painted. And a homemade cargo trailer believed to have been stolen was also seized.

The camp was vacant at the time. RCMP said police are working to identify who may be responsible and are asking anyone with information to call the Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at (English only).

You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information that leads to an arrest or recovery of stolen property, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
