Earlier this month, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers from Clearwater, B.C., investigated a break-and-enter at Clearwater Post Office, where several items—including an abundance of postage stamps—were stolen.
After asking the public to report anyone trying to sell stamps, Kamloops RCMP received a report on Oct. 5 of a female trying to sell stamps in Savona, B.C. Kamloops RCMP responded to the call; found the suspect vehicle; and brought a male and a female into custody. Police recovered a variety of stamps that had previously been reported stolen from Clearwater Post Office.
During the ordeal, police also confirmed the suspect vehicle—determined to be a rental car—was involved in an attempted break-and-enter at the Clinton Government Liquor Store on Oct. 4.
The female suspect initially gave police a false name; however, she was quickly identified and determined to have an outstanding warrant for her arrest.
The male suspect was also determined to also have an outstanding warrant; in fact, he had failed to attend court on the morning of his most recent arrest. He was found to be in breach of several of his prior release conditions.
Both suspects are now facing a number of felony charges.
