Provincial auto crime team reaps arrests in Prince George
Members of the B.C. Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team lived up to their acronym while in Prince George last week.
Also known as IMPACT, members were in the city patrolling for stolen vehicles and landed two arrests for which Crown counsel has approved charges.
David Juillette, 34, faces eight counts after he was allegedly found last Monday behind the wheel of a black 2005 GMC Sierra pickup truck reported stolen from Juillette’s hometown of Fort St. James.
RCMP said the truck was found parked outside a 1500-block Endako Street home and then driven to a restaurant with a stop to pick up a woman while on the way.
Members arrested the two at the restaurant and also found three rifles RCMP said were stolen during a break and enter in Fort St. James.
The woman was released without charge while Juillette remains in custody.
As well, seven charges have been approved against Colin Durrand, 28, of Prince George.
He was arrested last Tuesday after he allegedly hopped into a stolen white 1999 Ford F450 flatdeck parked at a 2100 block Norwood Street home and drove it to a 1900-block Victoria Street business.
A search of the truck incidental to arrest revealed break in instruments and property that had been stolen in a break and enter in the Cluculz Lake area, RCMP said. Durrand also remains in custody.
