Terrace RCMP roundup Nov. 2 to Nov. 12

Armed liquor store robbery, weapons, cash and cellphones seized

Terrace RCMP responded to approximately 290 calls between Nov. 2 and Nov. 12 including the armed and masked robbery of a liquor store, prohibited weapons and impaired driving.

Masked robbery suspect arrested and held in custody

On the evening of Nov. 2, Terrace RCMP say they received a report of a robbery at a local liquor store on the 4600 block of Lakelse Ave. Staff at the store reported that one male suspect entered the store wearing a black Hallowe’en mask with a skull on the front stating, ‘Are you gonna give me a bottle?’

Police say the man flashed a knife in his waistband, eventually drawing it out at the staff. The suspect then made off with bottles of liquor and fled on foot. There were no reported injuries and the suspect was arrested the next day. He is charged with robbery while disguised with the intent to commit a crime and remains in custody.

Prohibited weapons, cash, cellphones seized

On Nov. 11 police pulled over a vehicle reported as “associated to crime and the driver was found to have weapons in his possession while under a weapon’s prohibition. He was detained and police say a further search found numerous cell phones and a large quantity of cash. More weapons were found in the vehicle after the man was arrested and he was released with a court date. Police say they are investigating and will forward results of their investigation to the BC Prosecution Service to approve any charges.

Man arrested on active warrant

Police arrested a man near the Dudley Little bridge on an active warrant. Upon arrest the man was found to be in possession of an 8-inch blade, in breach of his release conditions not to possess weapons. The knife was seized and the man was transported to cells to await court.

Impaired driving

On the evening of Nov. 10 police pulled over a vehicle after the driver failed to stop at a stop sign and was swerving extensively while driving.

When asked to exit the vehicle, police say the driver had difficulty keeping his balance. The officer conducted an impaired investigation obtaining breath samples using an approved screening device. The results showed a ‘warn.’ His driver’s license was seized and he was issued an immediate 3-day roadside driving prohibition.

Driving without a license with warrant for arrest

Just after midnight on Nov. 3 a driver was stopped stop at the Fisherman’s boat launch. Police say the woman did not have a valid driver’s licence and also had a warrant out for her arrest in Hazelton. She was arrested and released with an appearance notice and a ticket for driving without a licence.

Shoplifting at grocery store

The afternoon of Nov. 10, the officers attended a local grocery store in response to a reported theft. Police found the suspect in the parking lot. Police say the woman had three unrelated warrants and was in breach of conditions not to visit that grocery store. She was arrested on “numerous offences” and taken to a cell.

Failures to appear in court

On Nov. 8, five people failed to appear for their appointed court dates. New charges were not approved but warrants were issued for their arrest and police promised to try and locate and execute those warrants.
