The items include bicycles, power tools, hand tools, chain saws and a dirt bike-style motorbike.

"Several items have been confirmed stolen and officers are working to identify the owners of the remaining items," RCMP said. "Once owners of the items are identified, they will be contacted by police."

Of the 17 bicycles recovered, none had serial numbers registered on the online bike registry, 529 Garage.

Found at project529.com/garage, the free registration process takes about five minutes and includes essential information such as the ownership details, serial number and photos of the bicycle.

In the event of a theft, the information can be distributed to other registered riders through an alert feature on the smart phone app. The information can also be provided to both the police and insurance companies.

"RCMP would like to remind the community to record all serial numbers of valuables and store the list in a secure place, not inside your computer," RCMP said. "Always report lost or stolen items to police."
