High-end property stolen from homes under construction around Lower Mainland: RCMP
Police in Burnaby are trying to reunite the owners of hundreds of thousands of dollars in property stolen from high-end houses under construction.
Some of the items individually are worth $25,000.
“The stolen property included everything from stoves, fridges, toilets and plumbing fixtures to flooring and lighting, with many items still in their original packaging,” said Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Chad Premack in a release.
Two shipping containers packed from floor to ceiling with stolen goods were found, and a Lower Mainland man was arrested while the investigation continues.
“This is a significant seizure, not just due to the sheer volume of stolen goods but also due to the value of many of these high-end items, which appear to have been strategically targeted due to their value,” said Premack.
While police try to track down the rightful owners, they’re appealing for potential victims to come forward. Investigators say while most of the thefts were in the Lower Mainland, homes in southeast B.C. may have also been targeted.
