A Prince Rupert man is facing multiple charges following a series of criminal offences in the Prince George and Vanderhoof area.

On Jan 21, members of the Prince George RCMP located and arrested 32-year old Anthony Halmut Pfrang after reportedly finding him committing a residential break and enter and an attempted theft of a vehicle at separate locations on South Shelley Road, just east of Prince George.

Pfrang allegedly also resisted arrest and assaulted two officers prior to being taken into custody.

As a result of evidence obtained by investigators upon his arrest, police have also linked Pfrang to a commercial break and enter that occurred in Vanderhoof the day before.

On Jan. 20, 2014, the Vanderhoof RCMP received a report of a break and enter at the Brookside Resort near Cluculz Lake, on Highway 16 approximately halfway between Vanderhoof and Prince George.

Officers found a pick-up had been driven through the front of the business and abandoned partially inside. Cigarettes and other items were taken from the business.  The pick-up had been stolen from Pacific Street in Prince George on Jan. 17.

Pfrang now faces charges of break, enter and theft, break and enter with intent, a total of eight counts of possession of property obtained by crime over and under $5,000, attempted theft of a vehicle and two counts of both assaulting a peace officer and resisting arrest.

The investigation is continuing and further charges are possible.
