Crime spree stops at Port Hardy

Two were arrested after an Island-wide crime spree that ended in Port Hardy

PORT HARDY—An Island-wide crime spree came to an halt at the end of the road after the RCMP stopped a stolen car with “a substantial amount” of stolen property.

A male driver and female passenger, both from Ontario, were taken into custody following the incident and remain in custody while awaiting an appearance in provincial court June 26.

The arrest followed a call to Port Hardy RCMP May 18 complaining of a theft from a vehicle parked near Raft Cove, near the head of the Cape Scott Trail.

A short time later, a member of the North Vancouver Island Traffic Services checked the license plate of a suspicious vehicle leaving the Holberg Road and learned the car had been reported stolen from the Sooke area several days earlier.

The car was subsequently stopped at Thunderbird Mall, and RCMP recovered stolen property related to more than 10 separate incidents throughout Vancouver Island.

The two suspects were charged with multiple offences, including theft, mischief and possession of stolen property.
