Search warrant recovers two stolen vehicles; charges laid

A 33-year-old man is facing charges after police found two stolen vehicles in his possession.

On July 19th, members of the Bonnyville RCMP were dealing with an unrelated matter in Bonnyville when they noticed a stolen vehicle on a  property.

Police released more details last week, saying they obtained and executed a search warrant on the residence, recovering two stolen vehicles and numerous tools and licence plates.

The suspect, 33-year-old Patrick Schmold, was arrested and charged with break and enter, possession of property obtained by crime, possession of a firearm, mischief under $5000 and alter/destroy/remove a vehicle identification number.

Schmold was brought before a Justice of the Peace who released him to appear in court on Tuesday.
