In June, police received a tip that some of the stolen rice was being sold online and in public. 

This lead police to investigate a warehouse in Langley where they found a number of items including the 3,200 pounds of rice. 

The investigation is ongoing and charges will be forwarded to the BC Prosecution Service.
