Police nab suspect in shots fired case

Daine Alphonse faces multiple charges

Williams Lake RCMP have made an arrest on a shots fired complaint last week.

Daine Alphonse, 30, was arrested and charged with possession of weapon for dangerous purpose, unlawfully discharge a firearm, use of a firearm to commit an indictable offence and careless use of a firearm.

The charges stem from a complaint from August 30 at about 1:20 a.m. when a Williams Lake resident reported that their house had been struck by a bullet. The house, in the 300 Block of 9th Ave, was occupied at the time and thankfully no one was injured.

“This investigation and the evidence that was obtained is a testament to the plain clothes General Investigation Unit, Forensic Identification Services, Police Services and General Duty Uniform Section who all worked tirelessly to bring this investigation to charge approval,” said RCMP Insp. Jeff Pelley, Officer in Charge.

“This offender being arrested including a recent weapon seizure will continue to enhance community safety and remains a priority of the detachment. The RCMP continue to work with Crown Counsel to ensure violent offenders are held accountable through the court system.”

Other charges Alphonse is facing in Williams Lake Provincial Court relate to a June 9 offence and are for mischief under $5,000 and wilfully resisting or obstructing a peace officer.
