File # 2021-40858, 45490, 45556

Police arrested two prolific offenders after investigating an armed robbery on Friday afternoon.

At 9:30 a.m. on Friday, November 19, 2021, the Prince George RCMP responded to a complaint of a robbery with a firearm at a business on the 900 block of Central Street West. Witnesses stated the suspect had driven away in a grey sedan.

Members of the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit located the vehicle a short time later at a residence on the 3000 block of Charella Drive. Police made contact with those inside the residence, who cooperated with the investigation and exited the home.

Police arrested one person in connection with the earlier robbery and released him on an Undertaking with a future court date, pending further investigation.

Police arrested a second man, whom they identified as 29-year-old, Prince George resident, Trevor Alexis, on an outstanding warrant. Investigators also found him breaching several of his court-imposed conditions. The B.C. Prosecution Service approved the following charges:

Mr. Alexis will remain in custody until his next court appearance. Both suspects are known to police. This is the second time police have attended this residence since October.

With Frontline police and the Street Crew Unit working together on this file, a suspect was identified and arrested within six hours of the initial report of the robbery, and a second offender was arrested on an outstanding warrant of arrest. This is just another example of the dedication that police in Prince George have to keeping their community safe, says Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.
