Terrace RCMP Const. Angela Rabut arrests Steven Schadinger, third year dental student with Cedar Coast Dental for the summer, for practising dentistry without a licence at the Crime Stoppers annual Jail ‘n’ Bail Fundraiser.

Crime Stoppers rounds up the criminals for Jail ‘n’ Bail

More than $4,000 brought in at the annual fundraiser.

Crime Stoppers rounded up the lesser-known criminals in town and put them behind bars until they came through with bail money at the annual Jail ‘n’ Bail fundraiser.

With bail set at a minimum of $50, Crime Stoppers raised $4,426.40 and received a donation of $2,500 from Gore Mutual, which is part of the Western Financial Group, for a grand total of $6,746.40.

Mr. Mikes also had a hand in raising money as they set up a barbecue on-site.

Crimes included not working on Riverboat Days and having weekends off, being injured and off work for six months and payback for having someone thrown in jail last year.

Terrace RCMP constables Crystal Evelyn and Angela Rabut rounded up the criminals and brought them before Sara Hopkins, who said she’s a “tough but fair” judge.

Then the criminals were jailed wearing an orange pinny with the Crime Stoppers phone number on it for as long as it took them to raise their bail.
