Prolific offender to face multiple charges

A 17-year-old prolific offender residing in Alexis Creek and recently relocated to Kamloops is scheduled for a bail hearing in court Dec.4.

A 17-year-old prolific offender residing in Alexis Creek and recently relocated to Kamloops is scheduled for a bail hearing in court Wednesday, Dec. 4, for possession of stolen property following a single vehicle accident on Highway 24.

The charges stem from an incident on Nov. 26 when 100 Mile RCMP received a report of the single vehicle collision, east of Homes Road near Lone Butte.

“A Ford F350 pickup had rolled in the ditch and an ATV had rolled out of the truck box,” said Sgt. Don McLean, operations NCO for the 100 Mile detachment in a press release issued Monday.

“Two witnesses reported a young male at the scene wanted a ride to Kamloops.”

McLean said witnesses provided a detailed description of the suspect in question, who they eventually located walking on the highway.

“He initially provided a false name, but his identification was subsequently confirmed,” McLean said.

Police say the truck was stolen from Williams Lake in late October while the ATV was stolen from Raven Lake on Sept. 20.

The suspect was remanded into custody until his Williams Lake court appearance.
