It didn’t take long for police in 100 Mile House to locate a stolen backhoe.
The RCMP say a 2013 Case Backhoe was reported stolen from Meryln Road in the Deka Lake area on Monday and, thanks to a tip from the public, it was recovered on a rural property in the area Thursday morning.
“Upon attendance, the owner gave consent permission for a ground search of their property and the Backhoe was located hidden along the back edge of the 10-acre property,” says Staff Sgt. Sven Neilsen.
The machine, valued at around $125,000, was seized.
As of right now, no charges have been laid but the RCMP say their investigation continues.
