As reported by the Terrace RCMP:

An alert police officer patrolling the streets last night caught a man red handed for break and entering.

While patrolling the streets along Greig Ave at 2:30 this morning the police officer observed a door closing and a human figure entering a business on Kalum St. Upon closer examination it was observed that the glass entrance door had been shattered to gain entry. Police entered the building and located a man sitting on the floor of the office bleeding. He was arrested without incident. Charges are being forwarded to Crown Counsel on the 38 yr old man.
