Anahim Lake RCMP were called to a residence in the 66-hundred block of West Street for a possible break and enter just before 5 a.m. back on February 1st of 2020.

Upon arrival, police say the residents were visibly upset and told them that a suspect had damaged their vehicle, forced his way into the home and destroyed property within the house.

RCMP say the suspect was also accused of threatening them with a firearm.

The victims recognized the suspect as he was known to them, and police say an arrest was made without incident at another residence.
