Sgt. Darryl Peppler confirmed Mounties met with Beliveau at his home shortly after he called police at around 8 a.m., Friday.

According to Sgt. Peppler, police have made arrests in two of the four stolen vehicle cases from this year, both of which are currently before the courts.

No arrests have been made in the case of Beliveau’s suspected stolen truck and it’s unclear if his vehicle was located.
