Three Vehicles Stolen, Two Suspects Sought
Prince George, B.C. – Mounties have made one arrest and are searching for two suspects they believe to be involved in the theft of three vehicles.
It all started at around 3:30 Saturday morning when police received a report of a suspicious vehicle between two businesses on Otway Road.
Cpl. Craig Douglass says when police arrived on scene, the suspect vehicle attempted to flee by going through two ditches and ramming the side of a police car before heading towards Miworth.
He says police did not pursue the vehicle but found it abandoned a few minutes later in a ditch. Further investigation revealed it had been stolen in Dawson Creek on Dec.5, 2016.
Douglass says the detachment’s Police Service Dog team found a female suspect hiding under a fallen tree and she was arrested with the assistance of service dog ‘Taz.’
Shortly after that police determined that another truck had been stolen from the business that the first vehicle was located at. The truck was found abandoned a short distance away while two suspects were tracked by Police Service Dog Teams.
Douglass says one suspect was tracked to another business where a third vehicle was found to have been stolen.
The vehicle is described as a white 2006 Ford F250 short box pick-up bearing B.C. licence plates DY8093.
The second track led to a home where a female suspect asked a resident to call a taxi. The two suspects and the stolen truck have yet to be located.
The woman who called a taxi is described as:
- Caucasian female
- 150 pounds
- Reddish hair with a bun or ponytail
- Wearing jeans, a red or maroon coat and brown boots
Police did arrest 34-year-old Christina Louise Nellis of Dawson Creek (with a history in Prince George say police) and was charged with the following offences:
- Assault Peace officer with a weapon
- Possession of property obtained by crime
- Flight from police
- Two counts of fail to comply with recognizance
