The investigation is continuing into a string of recent rural Break & Enters in our community.

On August 16th, 2017, members of the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit executed a search warrant on the rental van seized by police following the arrests. Dozens of items were located including a SKS rifle, a revolver handgun, power tools and an ATV.

The investigation has led officers to obtain and execute a search warrant at a residence on Wilson Crescent in Prince George on the late evening of August 16th. During the search dozens of items were located including a rifle, a shotgun, ammunition, power tools, bicycles, chainsaws and computers. Some of these items have already been confirmed to have been stolen. The remaining items are believed to be stolen.

The residential search led officers to obtain and execute another search warrant, this time on a van parked on the property. The warrant was executed on August 18th, 2017 and as a result, two outboard motors, a generator, a compressor, a vacuum and other items were seized. Some of the items have already been confirmed to have been stolen.
