The Fort St James RCMP is concerned about an uptick in property crimes this month.
Police say numerous businesses in the community have fallen victim to various offences, including break and enter and theft from vehicles.
“We have noticed that the crimes are being committed during early morning hours,” said Cpl. James Potyok of the Fort St. James RCMP.
“It is important to note that someone, anonymously, returned some of the stolen property to the rightful owner and, in turn, may have information to help further our investigation.”
Two people have been arrested in relation to the recent crime spree, including a 32-year-old Fort St. James man, who was released for a court appearance in August.
Subsequent to the arrest and during the search, police found suspected cocaine packaged consistent with drug trafficking.
These investigations remain active and ongoing, and anyone with any information is asked to call the Fort St. James RCMP.
