RCMP needed to be cautious when searching a home in Quesnel this week. 

According to police, on Tuesday, the Quesnel RCMP General Investigation Section and the Crime Reduction Unit executed a search warrant at a property on an acreage on Sundown Road. 

The search resulted in the seizure of two stolen trucks, a holiday trailer, a commercial lamp post, a generator, nine firearms, and more. 

"Property crime is always a concern in the Cariboo," said Sgt. Richard Weseen. "The public can assist the police by calling in suspicious vehicles and properties, and we can work together to combat property offenders in the Region." 

A Quesnel resident now faces two counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000, two counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000, and multiple firearm-related charges. 

All charges have been forwarded to the BC Prosecution Service.
