After an investigation led by General Duty members, a 27 year-old male was arrested and taken into police custody, with the car keys. The investigation is on going despite lack of cooperation from the registered owner.
A 28 year-old male was arrested and the welder, valued at $10,000, was recovered by General Duty members. The Williams Lake RCMP are recommending charges of theft over $5000 and possession of stolen property over $5000 against the male from Alberta.
Members of the General Investigations Section (GIS) of the Williams Lake RCMP spotted the vehicle travelling southbound on Highway 97.
Members followed the stolen vehicle to the Race Trac Gas station in Wildwood where a 30 year-old male was taken into custody after leading police on a short foot chase.
A collaborative effort by GIS and General Duty resulted in the successful apprehension of the male, while the assistance of police dog resulted in the recovery of dropped articles during the chase.
