The Prince George Citizen - - Local - Cit­i­zen staff

Prince Ge­orge RCMP have now deemed sus­pi­cious the dis­ap­pear­ance of a lo­cal man af­ter con­firm­ing that he owns a mod­u­lar home where a fire broke out.

Po­lice said Fri­day a black 2004 Ford F-150 pickup truck owned by the man, Robert Poulin, 54, was also found when at 11 p.m. on Dec. 28, po­lice and fire­fight­ers were called to the scene of the blaze at 4416 Green­wood St.

First re­ported miss­ing on Jan. 2, po­lice had said he was last seen the night of the fire driv­ing around in the Hart with his poo­dle in­side.

Po­lice are now ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help re­gard­ing where Poulin’s truck may have been in the days prior.

Specif­i­cally, they are seek­ing any wit­nesses or ve­hi­cle dash cam­era footage that was ob­tained on the fol­low­ing dates:

• Thurs., Dec. 27 from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. be­tween Chetwynd and Fort St John. A white canopy was on the back of the truck at this time, RCMP said.

• Fri., Dec. 28, from mid­night to 9 p.m. be­tween Fort St John and Prince Ge­orge. The canopy was no longer on the truck.

Poulin is de­scribed as Cau­casian, six-foot-two and weighs 188 pounds with short brown hair and green eyes. He may also have been wear­ing a blue win­ter jacket.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Cpl. Meghan Driscoll at 250-561-3300 or Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
