Red Deer RCMP have recovered hundreds of items of stolen property.

Last Friday, a search warrant was executed in Parkside Estates. Two individuals, 37-year-old Robert Martin and 40-year-old Michael Hawman, were arrested and charged with possession of stolen property.

Both are known repeat offenders.

Hundreds of stolen items, many of them collector items, were recovered, including Noah Welch signed hockey sticks, an autographed guitar pick collection, binders of hockey cards, 12 stolen bikes, 40 wrist watches and 40 cellphones and tablets.

RCMP have contacted several of the rightful owners to reunite them with their stolen items.
