Youth nabbed in break and enters

PORT McNEILL-RCMP recover some stolen property after six apartment units suffer thefts Dec. 2.

PORT McNEILL—A single youth suspect was expected to be charged with multiple break, enter and theft charges following a series of residential break and enters in a Port McNeill apartment complex on Dec. 2.

Port McNeill RCMP received multiples reports of residential break and enters (B&E) in the Kaleva Garden townhouse complex on Broughton Boulevard in Port McNeill Monday. In total, six B&E’s occurred, with police suspecting another six were attempted but unsuccessful.

The ensuing investigation resulted in local officers quickly identifying a lone youth suspect, and the recovery of multiple items stolen during the B&E’s. Investigators met with the youth on December 4, and he is expected to face charges of break, enter and theft in the coming weeks, said Sgt. Craig Blanchard, Port McNeill’s Detachment Commander.

“As a result of some quick work by our local officers, we were able to identify a suspect and recover much of the stolen property”, Blanchard said.

In keeping with the requirement of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, no additional information will be released that may identify the youth suspect in this case.
