Friday, November 20, 2015 @ 1:01 PM

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 .policecarnew

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.



Good work!
Keep up the pressure on the criminal low lifes and on those who are bent on self harm.

Names would be nice

Editor’s note:
Names are never provided until after someone has been officially charged.

Alright if they don’t want to post names how about posting areas of the city with increased criminal activity. Posted greater than once every six months would be nice. What about weekly?

ice: You’d probably have to ask the RCMP about that.
Great work by the RCMP though. Sometimes we don’t hear enough about all the things they do to keep us safe.
Try to imagine what it would be like without them. It would be every man for themselves, by whatever means they thought necessary!


If there is that kind of activity going on with thousands of needles laying around they should condemn the place and tear it down.
