Police are crediting the efforts of a concerned citizen with helping recover some stolen property earlier this month.

A neighbour reported a suspicious van at a residence on Wharncliffe Road in Duncan at approximately 6:30 a.m. on April 1.

Although neither the van nor any suspects were still on the scene when police arrived, they headed to a home in the area that has a reputation for harbouring stolen property. There, they located the van and a pair of suspects and were able to recover some stolen items.

Michael Ingram and James Perry have been charged with breaking and entering, and Ingram also faces a charge of possessing break-in instruments. The suspects will appear in Duncan provincial court on April 26.

“Good things happen when citizens are willing to get involved,” Cpl. Krista Hobday said.
