More property stolen in a series of break-and-enters last month from the slide area at Johnsons Landing has been recovered.

More stolen property recovered from Johnsons Landing

The strange case of re-appearing stolen property from the site of last year’s deadly landslide continues.

The strange case of re-appearing stolen property from Johnsons Landing continues.

RCMP say more items taken from four unoccupied buildings in the area hit by a landslide last year have turned up, this time on the front steps of a Kaslo church.

Other property, believed stolen from the homes in an area still deemed unstable after the fatal mudslide eight months ago, turned up about three weeks ago, piled neatly at the side of Highway 31.

“Perhaps my initial conjecture about a guilty conscience at work here is correct” Kaslo Cpl. Shaun Begg said in a news release, noting the symbolism of the articles — two pieces of computer equipment — being left at a church.

“Whatever the motivation for the location of the recovered property, it’s always nice to return property to its rightful owner.”

Begg said the recovered equipment will first be examined by the forensics unit. No arrests have been made and the investigation continues.

Four people died in the slide.
