Four Suspects in Custody in Cowart Road B & E
Prince George, B.C. – Four people are in custody while two RCMP officers were treated at hospital for injuries suffered in an early-morning business break-in on Cowart Road in Prince George.
Police say that at about 4 o’clock this morning they received a report of a Break & Enter in progress at a commercial business on Cowart Road. As officers arrived on scene, a pickup truck fled the business’ compound and rammed a fully marked police vehicle. The suspect vehicle fled the area despite having serious damage to one of its tires.
Approximately 20 minutes later, the same vehicle collided at low speed with a parked vehicle on Pioneer Avenue. Four occupants of the suspect vehicle, two adult males and two adult females, were taken into custody with the assistance of the Police Dog Service. The two males are both on the Detachment’s Prolific Offender list.
Two police officers were transported to hospital for treatment of non life threatening injuries.
An RCMP collision reconstructionist and the Detachment’s Forensic Identification Section have been called in to assist with the investigation. The investigation is continuing and further information may be provided as it comes available.
