Terrace RCMP say several items, believed to have been stolen, were seized during a recent bust at an encampment known as "Tent City" and police are now trying to find the owners.

Two men were arrested and items such as fishing gear, chainsaws, bicycles and tools were seized, after officers patrolled the area on the north side of Keith Avenue near the Skeena River last Wednesday (July 10).

Constable Jeff Campbell says officers have been trying to identify owners, but it's been difficult, due to the lack of "stolen property" reports and undocumented serial numbers.

If you think the items may be yours, contact Terrace RCMP and be prepared to provide a description of your missing property.

The Terrace RCMP is looking to reunite property owners with their stolen or lost goods following a bust in tent city recently.

On July 10, 2019 Terrace RCMP were conducting patrols in an area commonly referred to as tent city, north of Keith Avenue near the Skeena River, when numerous stolen items were observed. The items were seized and two men were arrested.

Since then, police have been going through the items and trying to identify owners, a daunting task due to the lack of stolen property reports and undocumented serial numbers.

We would really like to reunite as many of these items as possible with their rightful owners, said Constable Jeff Campbell. If anyone has had items recently stolen, please call and provide a description of your missing property.

Items seized include fishing gear, chainsaws, bikes, and tools.

Contact Cst. Jeff Campbell or Cst. Matthew Haas at 250-638-7400 if you think something may be yours.

If you have information about crime contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at www.terracecrimestoppers.ca.
