Rural Farm Land Aids in Hiding Stolen Property

A Niagara man is under investigation after police recover $155,000 worth of stolen property at his residence.

Hamilton Police and Niagara Regional Police have been involved in a joint project since the fall of 2018 into the criminal activity of a 49-year-old Niagara man.

On Wednesday, April 17, 2019, Hamilton Police BEAR Unit, Ground Search Unit and Niagara Regional Police Detectives attended the West Lincoln address and executed a search warrant. The search of the large rural property included three separate residences a large garage and seven outbuildings.

The following stolen items were located:

  • 45ft Laredo Recreational Trailer $60,000
  • Bobcat Excavator $40,000

  • U-Haul Trailer $10,000
  • 16ft Utility Trailer $10,000
  • Suzuki Motor Cycle $ 5,000
  • Variety of stolen license plates

Police are still investigating as most of the stolen items have been altered from their original state and it will take investigators some time to properly identify the origin of the property.

One separate male on the property was arrested on an outstanding warrant with Niagara Regional Police and Hamilton Police Service.
