A man from Steinbach faces numerous charges after police recovered stolen property in the vehicle he was driving.

On Sunday at 12:40 am, an RCMP officer on patrol noticed a vehicle that had been reported stolen the previous day, in the parking lot of a business along Brandt Street in Steinbach.

Police say the officer conducted a traffic stop and arrested the driver and sole occupant without incident. A search of the driver and vehicle resulted in the seizure of several stolen tools, jewelry and a wallet with ID. Further investigation linked the suspect to two other theft investigations.

Twenty-eight-year-old Nathan Botham of Steinbach has been charged with two counts of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, two counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and three counts of failing to comply.

He was remanded into custody.

Steinbach RCMP continue to investigate.
