A 23-year old Williams Lake man is in custody following a break-in at the Kersley General Store.
Quesnel RCMP received a report of an intruder alarm early this morning at 4:27 a.m.
Police say officers arrived to find that the store owner had interrupted the break-in.
The suspect fled but left a vehicle behind which was later determined to be stolen out of Williams Lake.
Officers, while conducting patrols for the suspect, then noticed a suspicious vehicle turning down Dragon Lake Road.
Police say that vehicle was later found abandoned on Datoff Road.
It turned out it too was stolen, only this time from the Quesnel area.
RCMP then noticed some footprints in the fresh snow that led them from the abandoned vehicle to an outbuilding on a local property.
The suspect was quickly arrested without incident.
