Two men caught napping in a stolen pickup truck Saturday night in Harrison are facing several charges.

Agassiz RCMP spotted the men at around 10:30 p.m. as they dozed in the vehicle, parked in the boat launch on Esplanade Avenue.

The truck did not have a boat trailer attached. Upon investigation, police found the licence plate had an expired decal and was flagged as stolen from another truck.  Further inquiries revealed that the truck itself was stolen, as was the snowmobile in the bed of the truck.

Located in the cab of the truck were two adult males who were fast asleep. The two were promptly woken up and arrested for possession of stolen property.

Raymond Thiffault, 23 year old and of no fixed address, was held in custody and appeared in Chilliwack Provincial court on Monday. He faces two charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000. The second male, a 33-year-old Chilliwack resident, was released for a Chilliwack provincial court appearance for July 29 for two charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000.

“Thieves may nap,” said Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen, “but the Police are ever vigilant.”
