Calgary, AB,

Seeking rightful owner(s) of recovered industrial batteries

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to return several items that were recently recovered by officers and are believed to be stolen.

On Saturday, Jan. 14, 2017, officers were patrolling an industrial area in northeast Calgary when they came across a vehicle in a parking lot in the 2600 block of 12 Street N.E. The car appeared to be stuck in the snow, so officers pulled up behind it.

As they approached the vehicle, they noticed the driver asleep inside. Officers woke up the man and while looking inside the vehicle noticed several industrial batteries. The man was not able to explain why he had these items or where they were obtained.

Police have since seized the batteries and would like to return them to the rightful owner, however, the items have not been reported stolen. Investigators are asking anyone who may use these batteries to check their stock and call police if any are missing.

Photos of the seized batteries can be found on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

The man who was in possession of the batteries was released and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the possible owner(s) of these items is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
