Two people are in custody for possession of stolen property after the Williams Lake RCMP investigated a single vehicle rollover near Likely Monday.

“As a result of an investigation into the crash, it was determined that there was a cargo trailer, four sleds, and an RV at a campsite in the Likely area, mostly stolen out of Hinton, Alberta,” Staff Sgt. Del Byron said Tuesday. “A male and female were arrested in a stolen truck. Another stolen truck from 100 Mile House got away.”

The crash occurred on Spanish Lake Road at 11:20 a.m. Monday.

“The Likely Volunteer Fire Department attended and told the female involved in the crash to wait for the police,” Byron said.

The pickup was upside down with major damage and there was a dead dog beside the vehicle, he added.

Further investigation by the RCMP determined there was a male involved in the crash, which led to the police discovering and seizing the stolen items at the campsite.

The case is still under investigation, Byron said.
