Law Enforcement Needs Help In Identifying Recovered Stolen

On February 7, 2013, the Idaho State Police, assisted by the Lewiston Police Department and the Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office, executed a search warrant at 28401 Rock Creek Rd. in Culdesac, Idaho.  This warrant was served after the Lewiston Police Department received information that stolen property may be at the residence stemming from recent residential and vehicle burglaries occurring in Lewiston.  During the service of the warrant detectives located multiple pieces of property, including firearms that had been reported stolen in Lewiston, Moscow and Grangeville.  Detectives also located marijuana, methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia.   Robert and Heidi Ryan were contacted at the residence during the search warrant.  The investigation is continuing and criminal charges are expected to be filed.

Police are looking to identify and contact the owners of the property that they believe to be stolen that was found at the residence in Culdesac.  Property found without proof of ownership includes the following:
Leupold VXII scope
Pioneer .22 rifle
Several high end mountain bikes
Several firearms

If citizens have had a mountain bike or firearm stolen in the Lewiston, Moscow or Grangeville areas and have not reported it, please contact your local police department or sheriff’s office to report it.  Your bike or firearm may be among those found.
