Stolen truck recovered
Prince George RCMP recovered a Ford F-150 pickup truck reported stolen in Fraser Lake.
Just after 8:30 p.m. on Friday, an officer with Prince George RCMP’s Youth Team identified the truck, which was reported stolen on Aug. 13, being driven on Victoria Street.
Multiple officers converged on the vehicle near the intersection of Victoria Street and Fourth Avenue, where the Prince George RCMP detachment is located. Five adults in the vehicle were initially arrested at the scene.
The driver, a 24-year-old Prince George man, was held overnight and released on Saturday on a promise to appear to court. A 37-year-old woman from Terrace was found in possession of what appeared to be a controlled substance. She was also released on a promise to appear.
The three other passengers were released without charge.
The RCMP is continuing its investigation into the case, and an analysis of the seized substances is planned.
