A woman shoplifter has been charged with two break-and-enter offenses committed at local retail businesses.
Williams Lake RCMP Corporal Brett Squire said police received a report of a break-and-enter at a business on Prosperity Way on October 16th.
He said upon reviewing in-store video footage it was determined that a female locked herself inside overnight on October 15th, and was observed stealing store merchandise and leaving the store with the stolen items.
On October 17th police received a report of a shoplifter at a business on First Avenue North.
Squire said store employees reported the suspect was in the store and they recognized her from video surveillance as having committed a similar store break-out from the night before.
Police attended and arrested the woman.
Jerrika Leigh Hill-Jackson is now charged with 2 counts each of breaking out and theft under $5,000.
Hill-Jackson has since been released from custody and is due in court on November 30th.
