A Rocky Mountain House man was arrested after a search warrant near Stauffer last week turned up a number of stolen John Deere machines.

Rocky Mountain House RCMP searched the rural property on Aug. 1, following a tip that a stolen John Deere tractor had been spotted on it. Police subsequently located the tractor, which they say was stolen from the Innisfail area in October 2014.

During the search, they also recovered a John Deere skidsteer and a John Deere bulldozer, which they say were reported stolen from Lacombe in January 2013 and Rocky Mountain House in July 2015, respectively.

Hector Dansereau, 73, of Rocky Mountain House, was arrested and is facing three counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000.

He was subsequently released with a court appearance in Rocky Mountain House scheduled for Sept. 16.

Police say the stolen property recovered has been returned to its owners.
