One person was arrested following a break and enter south of Williams Lake Monday.

Police say that in the early hours of July 2, the Williams Lake RCMP responded to report of a break and enter in progress at a rural property about 30 kilometres south of Williams Lake on Highway 97. While en route, members were updated that the suspect had fled the scene in a blue Chevrolet vehicle, heading toward Williams Lake.

The responding members located the suspect vehicle and arrested the lone occupant without incident. A subsequent search resulted in the recovery of the stolen property as well as a large quantity of drugs with a street value in excess of $10,000.

The drugs are believed to be unrelated to the break and enter. The male suspect is from the Prince George area and well known to police.

The suspect remains in custody and is to appear in court on today, July 3.
