On January 11, 2023, members of the Western Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit, and the Peace Region Crime Reduction Unit were conducting a joint investigation trying to locate Daniel Davidsen who was wanted on warrants in BC and Alberta.

During the investigation members of the Western Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit located a Dodge Nitro, in Grande Prairie, Alberta, that had been stolen from a break and enter that occurred on January 10, 2023, in Fort St John, BC.  After being stolen, the Dodge Nitro was used in a series of break and enters to businesses in Dawson Creek, BC.  Further investigation by the Western Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit and the Western Alberta District GIS Unit led to the arrest of Corbyn Hubley.  A search warrant was executed on Hubley's hotel room where several items taken during the break-ins in Dawson Creek were located. Hubley was subsequently charged with Possession of Stolen Property and held in custody. Further investigation into the break and enters in Dawson Creek, and Fort St John is being conducted by members of the Dawson Creek RCMP, Fort St John RCMP, and the Peace Region Crime Reduction Unit.  Anyone with additional information about recent break-ins is asked to contact their local RCMP detachment or Crime Stoppers.

On January 12, 2023, a member of the public called the Dawson Creek RCMP to report a suspicious vehicle in the One Island Lake area in BC.  Dawson Creek RCMP front-line police officers attended the area and located Daniel Davidsen after he fled into the woods to avoid arrest.  Member from the Western Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit, Western Alberta GIS Unit, Beaverlodge RCMP Enhanced Policing Unit, Peace Region Crime Reduction Unit, and North Peace RCMP Police Dog Services attended the area to assist the Dawson Creek RCMP in locating Davidsen.  Through their joint efforts, the various RCMP units were able to locate Davidsen and successfully take him into custody on his warrants.

Both Hubley and Davidsen continue to be held in police custody.

"The Peace Region Crime Reduction Unit will continue to work collaboratively with the RCMP in Alberta to target prolific and multi-jurisdictional property offenders active throughout the Peace Regions of Alberta and BC", said Sergeant Jaime Moffat, Acting Detachment Commander for the Dawson Creek RCMP.  "Anyone with information regarding property crime offenders are encouraged to report to their local RCMP detachment, or through Crime Stoppers."

The Peace Region Crime Reduction Unit was formed in December 2022 to investigate prolific property crime offenders throughout the Peace Region of British Columbia. The Peace Region Crime Reduction Unit currently consists of investigators loaned from the Dawson Creek RCMP, Fort St John RCMP, and North District RCMP GIS.
