Fort St James RCMP have seen an uptick in property crimes in the community during the first few weeks of May.

Numerous businesses in the community have fallen victim to various offences including break and enter and theft from vehicles. These offences tend to take place between midnight and 5am.

Two people have been identified and arrested in connection with the recent crime spree and while charges have not yet been laid they could face numerous charges including theft, mischief, trafficking stolen property and obstruction.

We have noticed that the crimes are being committed during early morning hours. 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. We would like to speak to that person. said Cpl. James Potyok, Fort St James RCMP.

These multiple investigations are ongoing and we ask anyone with any information to call the Fort St James RCMP at (250) 996-8269.
