Police and emergency services in Fort St. John are happy to report that nobody was found to be inside a garbage truck compactor after a report came in that someone had been in a recently emptied dumpster…

Police say on Friday, April 28, 2023, just after 10:30 AM, officers received a report of suspicious circumstance after a garbage truck driver received a third-party report that someone had been inside the dumpster recently emptied into the compacter.

The driver of the garbage truck was at the Fort St. John landfill waiting for police and emergency responders to attend prior to emptying the contents.

The load was emptied in front of several emergency responders who sifted through the compacted garbage, not once but twice, and no evidence of a person was located amongst the compacted contents.

This is certainly an unusual report for the Fort St. John RCMP to receive but we are glad that in the end, no one was found to have been injured or killed in the compacted garbage, said Constable Chad Neustaeter, Fort St John RCMP Media Relations Officer.

Nobody was injured.
