Police stress the public’s role in the intelligence-led investigation leading to the arrest

The Western Valley RCMP say intelligence-led investigations led to the arrest of a 30-year-old Hartland man and the recovery of a stolen property.

In a release issued on Aug. 31, the RCMP explained the force responded to public information received on Aug. 22 regarding a potentially stolen trailer. The information led to the recovery of stolen property in Greenfield.

The release explained that police located the trailer in Greenfield and confirmed that it had been stolen from Belleville earlier that day.

The RCMP said officers visited the trailer’s location, arresting the 30-year-old man at the scene.

The release said the RCMP discovered the man was wanted on four outstanding warrants for breach of conditions, possession of stolen property and breach of an emergency intervention order.

On Aug. 23, Kristopher McConnell attended Woodstock provincial court to face charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000. The court remanded McConnell into custody until his scheduled return to court on Sept. 12.

The release stressed the New Brunswick RCMP’s commitment to intelligence-led policing, describing the Greenfield investigation and arrest as the latest in a series of police actions aimed at reducing property crimes in the province.

The RCMP noted the public’s critical role in helping police achieve positive outcomes in its investigations.

“The Western Valley RCMP would like to thank the public for their assistance in recovering this stolen property,” the police said in its release.

The RCMP reminded anyone with information about, or who suspects, illegal activity in their neighbourhood to contact their local police.

They explained the public can also provide information anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), by downloading the secure P3 Mobile App, or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca.

The RCMP said the investigation is ongoing.
