QUESNEL, BC: Two males were arrested Tuesday morning following a report of a theft from a vehicle in the downtown of Quesnel…

Police say on Dec 3 at approximately 10 AM, a citizen reported they witnessed a theft from a vehicle and the two thieves fled and entered a 2007 Chrysler 300, which police say was also stolen the same morning.

When the officers located the vehicle on Dragon Hill, the driver increased speed and was driving erratically on North Star Road. The officers did not pursue the vehicle due to the risk to the public.

Shortly thereafter, officers located the car abandoned on an old road behind the City Landfill. A perimeter was set up and both suspects were found and arrested. One of the men was in possession of stolen property related to other thefts in the community.

“This file came to a successful conclusion due to the immediate call to the police and the good description of the suspects, vehicle, and direction of travel from the witness,” said Sgt. Richard Weseen.

The driver of the car, Thor HUSKINS, 28, was charged with…

  • theft of a motor vehicle over $5000,
  • possession of stolen property over $5000,
  • theft under $5000,
  • mischief,
  • and possession of a controlled substance.

The passenger, Quade HERDA, 21, was charged with…

  • possession of stolen property over $5000
  • theft under $5000,
  • mischief.

Both men made their first appearance on December 4, 2019.
