During the early morning hours of Sunday July 23, 2017, a Bear Lake resident returned home and found that his home had been broken into. As he approached the home, a gunshot was heard. The victim took cover and witnessed three male suspects flee the residence in a vehicle.
Police attended and cleared the residence. Approximately 75 firearms were stolen during this incident. The investigation has led officers to recover approximately 35 firearms that were located stashed off a rural road west of Prince George. Up to 40 firearms remain outstanding.

- White Ford F-350 Crew Cab Diesel pick-up truck;
