Police recover $300,000 worth of stolen goods, still seeking suspect
The Calgary Police Service is asking for the public’s help to return hundreds of stolen items to their rightful owners after approximately $300,000 worth of stolen goods were found in a southeast Calgary home.
On Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015, police responded to a call in the 200 block of McKerrell Way S.E. In the process of investigating a complaint, officers found over 600 stolen items. It is believed most of the property was taken from parkade storage units across the city.
Police also seized two firearms, including an assault rifle, and a small amount of drugs.
Since the property was seized, officers have been working to catalogue it and find as many owners as possible through police reports, and names or other identifying features on the property. That process is now complete and police are ready to ask for the public’s help finding the remaining owners.
A list of the property that has not been returned is available on The City of Calgary Newsroom and photos of some of the more unique items are available on the Calgary Police Service Flickr page at http://bit.ly/1BEMfX0.
Anyone who recognizes the property as having been stolen from them should contact the District 8 office directly at 403 428-6800.
Justin Cecil SCOTT, 30, of Calgary, is charged with seven firearms offences, including contravening the firearms act, possessing an unlicensed weapon, possessing a restricted/prohibited weapon, possessing a weapon with the serial number altered or removed, and various other offences.
Police are also still trying to locate another suspect related to this incident and are asking for the public’s help. Ryan Kori CALLAHAN, 33, of no fixed address, is wanted on warrants in connection to the seizures and various other offences.
