Terrace RCMP looking for public’s help in identifying two persons of interest

Stereo stolen from local store along Hwy 16 W

Terrace RCMP are asking for the public’s help identifying two persons of interest following a theft from Canadian Tire.

On July 29, Terrace RCMP responded to a report of a theft at the local business on the 5100 block of Hwy 16 W. Two men were observed on surveillance as placing a stereo inside of a cooler, then leaving the store without paying for it.

The stereo is valued at approximately $480.

Earlier this month at Terrace’s public forum on homelessness, Bryan Gascon, owner of the local Canadian Tire, detailed his experience as a business owner and voiced concern over a lack of capacity for policing in the community.

“I’m dealing with theft that is double, triple the norm. I’ve been broken into more times in the last 12 months than I have over the last 18 years,” Gascon says, noting that the business has around 12 active files open with RCMP.
