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.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about this or any other crim­i­nal of­fence, is asked to contact the Prince Ge­orge RCMP at 250-561-3300.
