All tires stolen from vehicle parked overnight in Terrace

Police briefs from Jan. 10 - 12

The first full week of January saw Terrace RCMP respond to approximately 208 files.

Of them, 90 occurred over the weekend from Friday, Jan. 10 to Sunday, Jan. 12 at midnight.

Below are highlights from the weekend’s calls for service.

Tires stolen from vehicle

A car was left tireless after someone took all four of its wheels and left it on wooden blocks.

On Jan. 10 around 8:25 a.m., Terrace RCMP received a report regarding the theft on the 4500 block of Scott Avenue. Video surveillance showed a person removing the tires around 1:15 a.m. and tossing them over the fence on the north side of the property, then leaving on foot around 2:15 a.m.

Police attended to investigate.

Man in custody after a string of offences

Resisting arrest led to more charges for a Terrace man wanted on breach and theft offences.

Around 4:40 p.m. on Jan. 10, a Terrace RCMP officer was patrolling downtown when a man was observed jaywalking in front of oncoming vehicles on Park Avenue and Kalum Street.

The officer recognized the man as being wanted for breaching his release conditions, pulled over, and told the man he was under arrest. The man walked away and then resisted arrest, which required additional assistance to control and handcuff him.

Anthony Keenan Pearson, age 20 of Terrace, B.C. was then held in custody for court on two counts of breach, one count of theft from December, and resisting arrest.

A court appearance was scheduled for Jan. 13, 2020 during which he was released by a judge with conditions.

Impaired driving

A man was arrested for impaired driving after a truck crashed into a snowbank Friday night.

On Jan. 10 around 10:15 p.m., Terrace RCMP responded to a report of single-vehicle crash on the 4600 block of Straume Avenue.

Police attended, investigated, and the driver was brought back to the detachment to provide breath samples.

Samples taken provided a reading of more than double the blood-alcohol content required for the Criminal Code offence of exceeding .08 mgs per 100 mls of blood, in addition to the offence of impaired driving.

A man was released with a court date and violation tickets.

A woman lost her licence for 90 days following a vehicle stop early Sunday morning.

Just after midnight on Jan. 12, police were conducting patrols on Hwy 16 near Eby Street when a vehicle was observed making a wide right turn onto Munroe Street.

Police stopped the vehicle and after speaking to the driver, conducted roadside breath tests, both which registered ‘Fail’ readings, indicating a blood-alcohol content exceeding .08.

A 90-day driving prohibition and 30-day vehicle impound were served to the driver under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Vehicle stolen from parking lot

A truck was reported stolen from the 4800 block of Hwy 16 W this weekend.

On Jan. 11 around 11:15 a.m., Terrace RCMP responded to a report of a stolen 2014 black Dodge Ram 1500, BCDL: KM3842. It had been parked at the location overnight from 8 p.m. and 11 a.m.

Anyone who may have seen the vehicle is asked to contact Terrace RCMP.
