A WOMAN arrested thanks to a store’s staff and a Crime Stoppers tip has been handed a suspended sentence.

Pansy Nisyok, 38, will have to follow conditions on a probation order for 12 months as sentenced by judge Christine Birnie here Oct. 9.

On Feb. 10, police announced the arrest of a woman caught red-handed stealing $183 worth of meat by Safeway employees and a Crime Stoppers tip Feb. 6.

The employees at Safeway received information from us and we got it through Crime Stoppers,that this woman specifically was shoplifting meat from them on a regular basis,” said Const. Angela Rabut, community policing and media relations officer for Terrace RCMP at the time.

So when she came in, the employees knew to pay very close attention to her, and voila.”
