Fort Saskatchewan victims of property theft might be in luck.
The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) executed three search warrants in December and seized a large amount of alleged stolen property. The items include building materials, tools, bicycles, silverware and guitars.
Police say the accused thieves frequented homes and job sites in the capital region, with Fort Saskatchewan among the targeted communities. Some of the thefts occurred in the Meadowview Drive area of the city in November.
"The items come from all over Edmonton, Beaumont, Fort Saskatchewan and Sherwood Park, and they're primarily from new home builds in the suburban areas of those communities. So the large majority of the items are tools," said Cheryl Voordenhout, communications advisor with EPS.
Police want citizens who have had items stolen to step forward and reclaim them.
"The Edmonton Police are advising anyone from the Meadowview Drive community who lost items from new home build job sites to have a look at our EPS Pinterest page to see if any of your items are on there," said Voordenhout.
Police have charged two men in connection with the thefts.
