Three people have been arrested after a rash of break and enters in the Charlie Lake and Clairmont areas.
The break and enters began in November, with the suspects entering unlocked vehicles and out buildings. Several ATV’s were stolen and taken for joy rides around the Charlie Lake area.
Three local youth have been charged in connection with these break and enters and are awaiting their first court appearance. The youths have been released on bail with conditions including curfews and no contact with each other.
The RCMP are still investigating these incidents and expect more charges will be recommended against these youths in the coming weeks.
The RCMP have been able to recover various pieces of stolen property and they are currently in the process of identifying the rightful owners.
If you have been a victim of a break and enter in recent weeks in the Charlie Lake and Clairmont areas, and have not reported the crime, you are asked to contact Cst. Josh Smith with the Fort St. John RCMP Crime Reduction Unit.
Anyone with information regarding these break and enters is encouraged to contact the RCMP at 250-787-8140 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.crimestoppersfsj.ca.
