RCMP report quiet weekend with a few break and enters

While the RCMP had 60 calls for service during the weekend most of them were minor, said Sgt. Rick LeBeuf in his weekend roundup.

On June 14 the RCMP responded to a break and enter to a residence in the 600 block of Carson Drive. The homeowner advised at approximately 4:30 a.m. two suspects broke into the residence and tried to steal a television.

The homeowner looked out a window and yelled at the suspects who dropped the television and fled the scene. One suspect was described as a Caucasian male with frizzy blond hair and a medium build last seen wearing a tan shirt and blue jeans.

The other suspect was a First Nation male wearing dark clothing, both suspects are in their 20s.

Suspects gained entry into the residence through a sliding glass door.  The matter is still under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crimestoppers or the Williams Lake RCMP Detachment.

Later in the day, police responded to a break and enter into a residence under construction on Fetters Drive.  Entry into the residence occurred between June 10 - 14.  Suspect(s) used a pry bar on every door in an attempt to gain entry before smashing a rear window with a rock and unlocking a rear door. The only things taken from the residence were small packets of cookies and keys.  This matter is still under investigation.

At approximately 10:15 p.m., police responded to complaints of numerous shots heard coming from the Westwick Pit Road area in Miocene. Officers attended but were unsuccessful in locating the suspects.
