Two arrested for shoplifting in Masset

Between March 11 and March 17, Masset RCMP responded to 21 calls for service.

Between March 11 and March 17, Masset RCMP responded to 21 calls for service. It was a relatively quiet week for the Masset RCMP in Northern Haida Gwaii.

On the evening of March 12, Masset RCMP were called to the Trumpeter Apartments after it was reported an intoxicated male had damaged a security camera and the enclosure case for a fire extinguisher. The male was located and arrested for mischief to property. The male was released on a Promise to Appear and is scheduled to appear in Masset Provincial Court in the near future.

On March 15, Masset RCMP received a complaint that two males were involved in shoplifting from the Fields Store. The males stole a backpack inside the store which they stuffed with items taken from the shelves. The males then departed the store, refusing to stop for employees. These same two males were involved in another shoplifting complaint at Delmas Co-Op the same day. One of the males was caught on video surveillance inside the Co-op stuffing his jacket with a meat tray and walking out of the store where he met up with the second male and departed the area. Police have identified who the males are and will be recommending charges of theft under $5,000 to Crown Counsel.

Please remember, it takes a community to police a community. Any suspicious activity can be reported to the Masset RCMP at 250-626-3991 or anonymously to Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or online at.bccrimestoppers.com.
