“This was the culmination of the public providing essential information and officers following up on this, which ended in arrests and recovery of a substantial amount of stolen property,” stated Sgt. Sascha Banks in a news release.

“The trust the citizens of Squamish have with providing us information is a vital component to a successful and effective community policing model.”

Officers say three people were trying to make photocopies of credit cards and identification at a local business on July 9.

Information provided by an employee at the business helped police discover the trio were associated to an allegedly stolen vehicle out of Kamloops, RCMP say.

Two of the suspects were arrested in downtown. Officers later arrested the the third person along Loggers Lane.

Police say there was an outstanding warrant from Kamloops for the third suspect and that he had prohibited weapons in his possession.

The suspects will appear in North Vancouver court this fall.
