On Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 09:26 am, 100 Mile House RCMP attended to a reported break and enter in progress in the 8400 block of Wilson Road in the Bridge Lake area near 100 Mile House BC.

Upon attendance to the property, the owner and others with him had located what appeared to be a party in progress, with a group of unknown males burning property to stay warm and having stolen tools and other supplies, including a snowmobile, from the property. One male was still on scene and another had allegedly fled on the stolen snowmobile on their arrival. During the attempted escape, this man on the sled had a collision with a snowbank.

After a witness assisted the slightly injured man from the sled incident and transported him to the Bridge Lake Store, 100 Mile House RCMP located the man still at the store. He was safely arrested and cleared by BC Ambulance with very minor injuries.

This man is known to Police. 100 Mile House RCMP then arrived at the original scene and arrested the other man, who is also known to local RCMP, for various offences - including break and enter and
mischief. Due to the large scale nature of the scene, with a snowmobile recovered several kilometres away from the original scene, BC Highway Patrol (100 Mile House) RCMP had attended to assist the investigators.

It appears that all the stolen property was recovered. With the investigation completed, 100 Mile House RCMP transported the men back to the detachment. During transport, one of the men assaulted the other. After being separated and arriving back at 100 Mile House RCMP Detachment, one of the men assaulted a peace officer by spitting in his face.

Both subjects are currently in custody. 100 Mile House RCMP wish to thank the property owner and the various witnesses who assisted with the investigation. In our area, this type of support from those involved is vital to a successful resolution. The investigation is ongoing.
