Crack Shack Raid Leads to Arrest
Prince George, B.C. – A report that a woman had been threatened with a firearm at a residence on Spruce Street yesterday resulted in one man being held in custody .
Prince George RCMP, along with the North District RCMP Emergency Response Team attended the home in the 1800 block of Spruce Street yesterday afternoon. Their search of the residence resulted in the seizure of some drugs, a .22 calibre rifle and stolen property.
In addition, the residence was littered with thousands of used syringes.
Fifteen people in the residence were arrested, all but one were released on documents to appear in Court on a later date.
“This crack shack is a flop house for people from outside our community” says Inspector Brad Anderson, Operations Officer for the Prince George RCMP. “It’s a place for them to stay while doing harm to themselves, our residents and our City.”
A 30 year old male was held in custody overnight and is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court today. An arrest warrant has been requested for another 30 year old male.
Among the stolen property recovered were two bicycles and an air compressor.
Police remind the public to report all stolen items and to record serial numbers. That kind of record will help police identify the property as stolen, and help them return the items to their rightful owners.
