The Nanaimo RCMP are looking for the owners of some tools they seized during a vehicle check in the early morning hours of Tuesday, November 24.
At approximately 12:30 am, police performed a vehicle check on a 2020 GMC Acadia rental vehicle on Howard Ave and the investigating officer saw the tools in plain view on the rear seat.
According to the Nanaimo RCMP, neither the male driver nor his female passenger were listed on the rental agreement and neither could offer a reasonable explanation as to where the tools came from. Additionally, the vehicle was one day late in being returned to the rental agency.
Police then had the vehicle towed for safekeeping and the rental agency was informed of its whereabouts.
The tools were seized because the officer was of the opinion that the tools had most likely been stolen.
All serial numbers were checked but wielded no results.
The list of tools in the RCMP’s possession:
- Milwaukee Fuel 18V Band Saw
- Ramset Master shot fastener
- Magtorch cutting torch kit
- Snap-on tools, automotive compression gauge set
- Longacre digital caster camber gauge
- Extech laser photo/contact tachometer
- Longacre tire gauge and temperature reader
- heated knife
- Dewalt toolbox with a variety of less expensive hand tools
- HDMI cord and USB cord
One of the tools is engraved with the name “Mitch” and the Milwaukee band saw has the letters “TTI” on it. RCMP say the band saw is a very unique tool.
If you have information on the ownership of these tools, you are asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file # 2020-42349.
