PORT HARDY—RCMP quickly track down suspects after early morning theft from Sporty Bar and Grill Sunday

PORT HARDY—Three suspects were arrested following a break-and-enter at Sporty’s Bar and Grill early Sunday morning.

A 19-year-old Nanaimo man who recently moved to the area and two youths face charges of break and enter and theft.

Port Hardy RCMP responded to a break and enter in progress at 3:30 a.m. Jan. 11 at the business, located at 8700 Hastings Street.

Entry was gained through a window that was smashed by a large brick. The parties were gone prior to police arrival, and several bottles of liquor were stolen.

The RCMP examined video surveillance and interviewed witnesses who assisted in the identification and arrest of the three people.

“The apprehension of these suspects was a priority for my officers and today the community is much safer with the persons responsible for this crime in police custody”, said Staff Sergeant Gord Brownridge, officer in charge of the Port Hardy RCMP.

The two youths were remanded in police custody and were scheduled to appear in Port Hardy Courts Jan. 13. The adult male was released to appear at a later date.
