A man facing various charges following the recovery of a stolen van and a number of other items had his case put off to September.

Kyle Reynar, 26, appeared in person Friday at Lethbridge provincial court where his case was adjourned to Sept. 1.

He is facing charges stemming from the recovery of a stolen van, as well as other pieces of stolen property ranging from bikes and tools to vehicle parts and assorted electronics, from a northside yard.

A Lethbridge Police Service officer was on patrol when he observed a partially covered black GMC Safari van parked in the yard of a home along the 700 block of 17 Street North.

Recalling that a similar van had been reported stolen a week prior, the officer confirmed the vehicle was still missing then approached the yard on foot. The van was observed to have its logos and emblems freshly spray-painted over.

A second officer then attended and the homeowner gave police permission to enter the backyard. The van was confirmed to be the vehicle that had been reported stolen, and police observed numerous other items in plain sight that were suspected to be stolen including bicycles, some of which had been crudely painted over.

A search warrant was obtained and a subsequent search of the home, garage and van resulted in the seizure of tools, tool boxes, ladders, a microwave, a partially dismantled dirt bike and street bike, numerous electronics, .22-calibre bullets and unknown pills. All the items were seized by LPS. Follow @JWSchnarrHerald on Twitter
