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.
