Police arrest youth in overnight break and enter

On February 2, 2023 at 2:35am, the Fort St John RCMP received a commercial break-in alarm at a business located on the 10100 block of 100th Street in Fort St John.

Front-line police officers on proactive patrol in the area attended and located a youth exiting the business. The youth was observed dropping a stolen item from the business as they departed the area on foot.

After a brief foot pursuit by one of the speedy front-line police officers, the youth was apprehended.

Fort St John RCMP front-line police officers are actively engaged in efforts to decrease the number of break-ins, said Constable Chad Neustaeter, Media Relations Officer for the Fort St John RCMP. In this case, proactive patrols in the area had police in the right place at the right time leading to the location and arrest of the youth offender.

The youth was released on an Undertaking with conditions not to attend the business and a parent was notified. Charges will be recommended for Break and Enter, Mischief, Theft under $5000 and Resist Arrest.
