Fort St. John RCMP arrest two known offenders following stolen vehicle incident…

On October 24, 2020 in the early morning hours, the Fort St. John RCMP located multi-jurisdictional offenders, Tyler ROHERTY and Bridget CAPOT BLANC, in the Cecil Lake area of BC, while driving a stolen vehicle.

In early August, ROHERTY was convicted of Operating a Motor Vehicle while Disqualified (Criminal Code) and Impaired operation of a Motor Vehicle (Criminal Code) and issued a 5 year driving Prohibition in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

In late August, ROHERTY was charged with Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle (Criminal Code) and Operation while Prohibited (Criminal Code) in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

On October 17, ROHERTY was charged with Possession of Stolen Property obtained by Crime (Criminal Code).

That same day CAPOT BLANC was released on an Undertaking for 2 counts of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime (Criminal Code) to attend court on December 21, 2020.

On October 24, 2020, the Fort St. John RCMP attempted to stop a stolen vehicle driven by ROHERTY and his passenger CAPOT BLANC.

Officers deployed a spike belt and successfully deflated the front tires but ROHERTY continued to drive with deflated tires in efforts to avoid arrest. ROHERTY then struck marked police vehicles before going into a ditch at low speed.

Both ROHERTY and CAPOT BLANC refused to exit the vehicle which was still running. The PDS service dog was utilized for arrest due to the suspect’s non-compliance with police commands.

ROHERTY and CAPOT BLANC were arrested on scene and transported to the hospital to be medically cleared before being released to police custody.

ROHERTY faces charges for Possession of Property Obtained by Crime, Flight from Police, Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle (Criminal Code), Operate while Prohibited (Criminal Code) x 2 and remanded in custody until November 9, 2020.

CAPOT BLANC faces charges for Possession of Property Obtained by Crime (Criminal Code) and released on a Release Order for court on November 9, 2020.
