Suspects charged in relation to break and enter, theft in Grande Prairie

Two people are facing charges related to incidents of breaking and entering in Grande Prairie over the weekend.

Early Sunday morning, Grande Prairie RCMP was called to a report of a Break and Enter at Holy Cross School.

Police attended the scene with Grande Prairie Police Dog Services, and were notified that there was a second break and enter at IV Macklin School while searching the area; security officers who attended the call advised they witnessed two young people fleeing the scene.

Police conducted extensive patrols of the area and found one suspect, and Police Dog Services found the second suspect was found a short time later.

19-year-old Preston Yellowknee of Grande Prairie has been arrested and charged with Break, Enter and Theft.

The other suspect, also from Grande Prairie, was charged with the same offences. However, RCMP are not revealing his name at this time.

Both of them are expected to appear in court in the New Year.
