(Nanaimo RCMP)

Nanaimo RCMP are looking to reunite stolen tools with their rightful owner, after seizing them during a traffic stop earlier this month.

At approximately 1p .m. on July 7th, an officer seized a variety of tools he believed to be stolen from a vehicle that was parked in the area of 250 Victoria Road. 

The officer initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle after noticing it was illegally parked. 

After speaking with the 37-year-old driver, the officer asked him about the origin of some tools in the vehicle’s backseat. 

This question led to several responses from the driver which, to the officer, did not add up. 

As the officer continued to question the driver, it became clear to him that the tools had likely been obtained illegally. 

The officer seized the tools, however, they were not able to definitely establish the driver of the vehicle had stolen them. 

The occupants and their vehicle were then sent on their way.

If these are your tools, or they belong to your company, and you can identify them through receipts, serial numbers or unique markings, you are asked to contact the Nanaimo RCMP at (250) 854-2345.
