When police make a bust it often involves drugs, weapons or cash.
In a case near Lillooet, it involved a tiny house.
The tiny house was originally reported stolen Dec. 28 last year (just over a week ago) from a seasonal property, according to an RCMP press release. It wasn't as hard to move as one might initially think; the eight-foot by 17-foot structure was mounted to a trailer.
While Boston Bar RCMP couldn't initially find a suspect or the large stolen item they passed the description on to other detachments. On Dec. 31 Lillooet RCMP got a tip about someone trying to sell a tiny home.
Officers responded by going to check it out themselves. At the property they saw the tiny house and ended up taking a man associated with the property into custody. He was later released.
On Jan. 3 they went back, this time with a search warrant. Not only did they find and seize the tiny home, but also found a generator stolen from a Coldstream property in August. In all $80,000 of stolen property was found.
A 48-year-old man from Lillooet is facing a variety of potential charges.
