Thieves caught in the act in the South Cariboo

Last night (Thursday) 100 Mile House RCMP was advised of a break and enter and theft in progress on North Bonaparte Road near Bridge Lake at 10:35.

RCMP says the complainant reported seeing three men on their property trying to steal one of their ATVs.

The owner said he saw two of the men get into a white or tan truck and drive off, didn’t get a license plate, and the third man left on the ATV.

RCMP say the owner followed the ATV and came to find the ATV crashed into a tree along North Bonaparte Road and the man fled on foot.

After that, the owner went home and called the RCMP who responded immediately, as well as a Police Dog Service (PDS) Team from Williams Lake.

Once PDS arrived, they completed a thorough track of location with assistance from some officers, but the officers were unsuccessful in finding the man who fled on foot after crashing the ATV.

RCMP says that it seems the unknown man may have been picked up at some point given the loss of track in the area.

 Due to the police having familiarity with the possible suspect’s they attended a home on Grosset Road.

 RCMP says they found a stolen license plate on the vehicle in the driveway, as well as a UTV and ATV.

 A local man known to Police appeared in the window but refused to come out after being hailed by Police.

 RCMP ran checks on the UTV/side by side in the driveway and found that it was stolen out of the Kelowna area.

 Police confirmed the license plate was stolen but, the vehicle it was attached to was not.

 The ATV was also found to be stolen and was seized by the Police.

 RCMP say the man was left inside, as officers did not believe they had enough continuity to enter the property and ensure the man was still inside the residence.

Police said they entered the home in the early hours this morning once they received a Feeney warrant to arrest the person inside.

 The investigation is still ongoing.
