B&E Suspect Caught in the Act

On April 4, Port Hardy RCMP responded to a break and enter in progress on Granville Street.

On April 4 at 12:22 a.m., Port Hardy RCMP was dispatched to a break and enter in progress at a business located in the 8900 block of Granville Street.

Within moments RCMP arrived on scene to find a front window smashed and items scattered in the parking lot. Police located an intoxicated male inside who was arrested without incident. All stolen property was recovered and returned to the store owner.

Kyle Phillips, a resident of the North Island, was charged with break, enter and theft. He was released from police custody and scheduled to appear in court at a later date in May.

On April 21, Phillips was again arrested, this time charged with assault, after he punched a male in the face causing minor injuries. Phillips was held in police custody and appeared in court on April 22, as he was breaching conditions of his release stemming from the April 4 incident. Phillips is detained in custody until his next appearance on May 12 where all charges will be addressed.
