He was also ordered to provide a DNA sample to police and pay a $100 victim fine surcharge.

On March 25, police reported that Cooper was in RCMP custody and was facing eight charges, including breach of probation, theft and possession of break-in instruments, in relation to a rash of break and enters into city businesses over two weeks.

He was well-known to police, of no fixed address and was arrested on March 22, said police,.

“It was a combination of good police work and great support from the community that led to this arrest,” said Terrace RCMP inspector Dana Hart at that time.
