File # 2023-1292

On January 13, 2023, shortly after 1:00 a.m., Prince George RCMP conducted a traffic stop with a vehicle on Queensway near Patricia Boulevard. While speaking with the driver of the vehicle, police observed a gun case resting at the feet of the front passenger.

The two occupants of the vehicle were arrested and a subsequent search of the vehicle for public and police safety located two firearms and some ammunition. One of the firearms was recently reported as stolen from a residence in Prince George.

The vehicle search located drugs and drug trafficking paraphernalia as well as many large items that appeared to be stolen. We are asking the Prince George community to check their homes, vehicles and around their property for any recently missing items that may not yet have been reported as missing. If you think one of these items is yours, proof of ownership, such as the serial number, will be needed to claim it, states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.
