UPPER NINE MILE RIVER - One’s heard of stolen cars, but a stolen backhoe?

The RCMP say they seized a Case 580s backhoe valued at $175,000 from a property in Upper Nine Mile River this week.

The East Hants Street Crime Enforcement Unit and the Enfield RCMP executed the search warrant on Thursday and say that the backhoe had been stolen from Calgary in February, 2013.

A 56-year-old man has been arrested for possession of property obtained by crime and is due in Shubencadie provincial court at a later date.
