  • May. 29, 2015 2:00 p.m.

TERRACE RCMP say they arrested two 16 year-old boys and one 17 year-old boy last night for a string of thefts from vehicles in the Horseshoe area.

“Numerous items have been recovered and we are looking for owners. We believe that this may have been an ongoing occurrence for a while, specifically in the Bench and Horseshoe areas,” said Terrace RCMP Constable Angela Rabut.

“Some of the items that we have are numerous keys, PS3 with games, hatchet, IPod, various knives, flashlights, IPod power cables, head phones, various cards, N stickers, and an airsoft gun with bullets,” said Rabut who invited people who have had items stolen from vehicles to contact the detachment.

The arrests followed police responding to a report at 1 a.m. today of three males going into driveways on Lambly Ave. and checking for unlocked vehicle doors.

“Police began conducting patrols in the area and observed three males matching the description of the thieves on Labelle Ave. On approaching the group two of the boys fled leaving the third holding a bag full items,” said Rabut.

“Two people approached police and identified items in the bag as belonging to them and just having been stolen from their vehicles,” said Rabut.

She said police service dog Eli was called in after which two boys attempted to flee from police after being spotted in the Caledonia Secondary soccer field.

They were then located hiding in bushes and arrested.
