Charges have been laid in the arrest of three people – including a Courtenay man – following a string of thefts from vehicles going back to last October.

Between October, 2014 and Jan. 15, 2015, Campbell River RCMP responded to approximately 308 complaints of thefts from motor vehicles.

RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Poppy Hallam said tips from the public, surveillance video and solid police work led the officers to the suspects and on Jan. 16 the first suspect was arrested and in the early morning of Jan. 17 the remaining two suspects were arrested.

A warrant to search a residence on Eardley Road was executed and evidence was recovered.

Police announced Tuesday that Mitchell Klody, 18, of Courtenay has been charged with theft under $5,000. Mark Anthony Randall, 20, of Campbell River has been charged with theft under $5,000 and Laura Randall, 25, of Campbell River has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime, and fraudulent use of a credit card.

More charges are expected against the three accused.

During the course of the investigation, police seized over 100 pieces of evidence related to the thefts from vehicles in the Willow Point and Ocean Grove area and will be attempting to reunite these items with the rightful owners.
