Liquor Stores Targets of Smash and Grabs

Monday, March 27, 2017 @ 12:27 PM

Prince George, B.C. – Prince George RCMP  are hoping the public can  aid them in identifying the suspects in three  break and enters to  private  liquor stores in Prince George.

Scene this morning at incident on Cowart Road

The most recent happened  around 1:30 this morning on Cowart Road ( see previous story),  where  it appears a vehicle was driven into the  building to gain access.  Suspects and the vehicle were gone before police arrived on scene.

It is the third  Break and Enter to a liquor store  since  Sunday  March 19th, and the second in which a vehicle was  used to  gain entry.

At approximately 4:30 AM on Sunday March 19th, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a Break & Enter at a liquor store on Highway 97 near Northwood Pulpmill Road in Prince George.  Officers arrived and found that the window was smashed and a small amount of liquor had been stolen.

Just before 6:00 AM on Tuesday March 21st, 2017, the Prince George RCMP responded to a report of a Break & Enter at a liquor store on Monterey Road in Prince George.  Two suspects were captured on surveillance using a vehicle to gain entry to the business and then stealing several bottles of liquor.

Police are aware of the similarities in these incidents and are alive to the possibility that all three were committed by the same persons. The investigation is continuing and officers are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the persons responsible.

Anyone with information   that might assist in this investigation is asked to contact Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300  or Crime Stoppers at -800-222-8477.


close down the liquor stores…problem solved

Don’t they have cages at the door??

Is it just me or are the police looking for a lot of help lately? Maybe if we paid them more they could afford to do their own investigations.

    Full of it today, ain’t yuh? LMAO!

Canvassing the public for information is part of an investigation … or would you rather they play pin the tail on the donkey? blindfolded?

    Well if that’s your attitude, perhaps you could help me with my paper route.

When you privatize liquor outlets these are the risks you take when you do not have a proper security. Can you imagine if they were selling weed. Put the liquor sales back in government outlets where things are more secure and employees can be paid a living wage.

    Take away from small business? No.

    Just what we need, more Government employees sucking of the teat and going on strike every year for more, more , more!
