Mounties Nab Priority Offender
Prince George, B.C. – A 39-year old Prince George man has been arrested for the suspected theft of a dirt bike.
RCMP Corporal Craig Douglas says the suspect – Dean Reginald Anderson – was arrested after he was found in position of a dirt bike police believe was stolen last Sunday from a business on the 4000 block of 18th Avenue in the city.
He says sometime overnight a suspect or suspects gained access to the secured compound of the business and stole two dirt bikes.
On Tuesday, just before 11 a.m., Douglass says police observed a man operating a dirt bike that did not have a license plate and had a flat tire near an apartment building on Ahbau Street.
That man turned out to be Anderson. It was also found to be one of the dirt bikes stolen Sunday night.
Thus, Anderson has been charged with Possession of Property Obtained by Crime over $5,000 and will appear in court today.
Douglass says Anderson is well known to police and a detachment priority offender. He says a priority offender is a person that has been identified by police and community partners as a high risk to reoffend.
