Thief caught in the act of breaking and entering

  • Jun. 18, 2014 3:00 p.m.

As reported by the Terrace RCMP:

An alert police officer patrolling the streets last night caught a man red handed for break and entering.

While patrolling the streets along Greig Ave at 2:30 this morning the police officer observed a door closing and a human figure entering a business on Kalum St. Upon closer examination it was observed that the glass entrance door had been shattered to gain entry. Police entered the building and located a man sitting on the floor of the office bleeding. He was arrested without incident. Charges are being forwarded to Crown Counsel on the 38 yr old man.

There have been nine break and enters in the past week in Terrace. Sometimes all it takes is some small changes to your business/residential environment to deter thieves and crime. If you would like a free visit from an RCMP Auxiliary member trained in Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design call the Terrace RCMP at 250-638-7400. He will walk your business/residence with you and point out some ways to help protect yourself from crime, says Cst Angela Rabut, Community Policing/Media Relations Terrace RCMP.
