As the result of several search warrants throughout the CBRM, members of the Community Safety Enforcement and Street Crime Units recovered an estimated $100,000 worth of stolen goods. Police have been actively returning items to their owners, but many are yet to be claimed.
Among the property being held in police storage, are a variety of tools – drills, grinders, chop saws, reciprocating saws, circular saws, wrenches, nailers, socket sets and other hand and power tools – generators, compressors, a leaf blower, a heater, a welder, a set of amber roof lights and an aluminum boat.
Through investigation, Cape Breton Regional Police have learned the seized property comes from a variety of break and enters, some as old as 2010. Anyone who has had any of these types of items stolen, is asked to please come forward and help police identify the property. Police will be asking for a specific description of the items in question.
