NANAIMO — Were you robbed on Monday night?

Oceanside RCMP are asking Parksville residents to check their homes and cars after they found and arrested a 49-year-old breaking into a trailer at a storage compound on the morning of Tuesday, May 15.

Cpl. Michelle Lebrun said "the suspect had many other stolen items" police would like to get back to their rightful owners.
