Prince Rupert RCMP respond to a break-in with resident in the house

On September 24 members of the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment responded to a complaint of a break and enter in progress.

On Sept. 24, 2012 at approximately 10:39 a.m. members of the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment responded to a complaint of a break and enter in progress in the 600 Block of Fulton Street, Prince Rupert.

The complainant called police and reported that someone had broken into their home while they were present, and had just fled the scene. Upon arrival police spoke with the complainant and determined that the suspects in the matter were known to the victim and that some items had been stolen from the home.

“At this stage we have been able to identify the suspects involved, and have determined that this is an isolated and targeted incident,” stated Cst. Matt Ericson, spokesman for the Prince Rupert RCMP.

“As the suspects had fled the area prior to police attendance we are appealing to the community for any additional information that may assist investigators.”

As this investigation is ongoing, the Prince Rupert RCMP is asking anyone that may have information regarding this incident to contact the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment at 250-627-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).  Please remember that Crime Stoppers pays cash for information that leads to an arrest.
