On August 15, Beiseker/Airdrie Rural RCMP took a search warrant to a rural property near Balzac. An estimated half-million dollars worth of property was seized and a local man, Darin James, was arrested and charged with several property related offenses.

Last Friday, local RCMP obtained an additional warrant to search James' property at Highway 566 and Range Road 20, south west of Airdrie. Police found various stolen items including: seven 12-15 Yard waste bins, a dove-tailed deck, an XR5 Multilift, and several other heavy duty attachments.

RCMP have charged James with 13 additional property related charges. He'll remain in custody and appear in Airdrie Provincial Court on August 25, 2011.
