Two Fort St. John men charged with numerous offences following robbery…

DAWSON CREEK, BC: Two Fort St. John males have been charged following an Armed Robbery in Pouce Coupe back in early August…

Police say on August 7, a vehicle stolen from Fort St. John was located at a gas station on the east side of Grande Prairie after information was shared by both the Fort St. John RCMP and the Dawson Creek RCMP.

RCMP, along with the assistance of Grande Prairie ALERT, arrested two male occupants of the vehicle at a gas station. The pair were arrested in a stolen vehicle and a quantity of stolen property was located inside the vehicle.

Michael Robert Corris, 31, of Fort St. John, has been charged with:

  • 1 count of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000
  • 2 counts of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000
  • 3 counts of Failure to Comply with Recognizance
  • Resisting Arrest

Joseph William Kelly, 56, of Fort St. John, has been charged with:

  • 1 count of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000
  • 2 counts of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000
  • Fail to Comply with Probation Order
  • Flight from Police
  • Resist Arrest
  • Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle

Both males have been remanded in custody and will appear in Grande Prairie Provincial Court on September 26, 2019.

Both also face charges of

  • Robbery,
  • Disguise with Intent,
  • and Breach of Recognizance for the Dawson Creek Robbery.

“Time and time again we see that Provincial borders are meaningless to those who commit crime in the Peace Region. This is a great example of how information sharing between our regional partners resulted in the quick and safe apprehension of the suspects,” says Cpl. Chris Power of the Western Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit.

As this matter is now before the courts no further information will be provided.
