Police Seek Suspects in Theft from Truck Case
Prince George, B.C. – The Prince George RCMP is seeking the public’s help in locating two suspects believed to be involved in a case where valuables were stolen from a local pickup truck.
Cpl. Craig Douglass says on July 3, 2017, police received a report of a theft from a vehicle on Williams Crescent, off Ferry Avenue. Some cash and personal documents were stolen earlier that morning.
He says surveillance images shows a man trying to open a locked car door before entering an unlocked pick-up truck.
The male rifles through the truck while a female keeps watch on the street. The female then walks up a driveway across the street and tries to open a locked door on a vehicle, but is unsuccessful.
The male leaves the truck and walks to the neighbouring driveway where he unsuccessfully attempts to open two other vehicles.
(See video. Note that the video recorder time was set approximately three hours ahead of time and that the actual time of the offence was about 4:15 a.m.)
Of the five vehicles, the suspects tried to open, simply by trying the door handle, four of them were locked and left untouched.
All five were checked in about 90 seconds. With that in mind, Douglass reminds vehicle owners to ensure they are always locked and free of valuables.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call police at 250-561-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
