File # Oceanside RCMP 2022-2112

On March 10, 2022 Oceanside RCMP received a report of a home invasion in the rural area of North Qualicum. Two suspects have been arrested and charged with various offences.

In the early morning hours of March 10, 2022 police were called to a residence in the rural area of North Qualicum. The victim reported being confined and threatened with a firearm. The suspects, who were known to the victim, stole various items including the victim’s vehicle.

The investigation conducted by Oceanside RCMP Frontline and General Investigation Section officers, assisted by Nanaimo RCMP, RCMP Forensic Identification Services and RCMP Emergency Response Team, led to the arrest of two suspects on March 10, 2022 in Nanaimo.

A firearm believed to be used during the offence was recovered and a search warrant of the suspects’ residence executed on March 11, 2022 resulted in the recovery of some of the victim’s stolen items. The victim’s stolen vehicle was recovered in Nanaimo.

The two suspects have appeared in court and remain in custody. 36-year-old Spencer Schaeffer of Nanaimo is charged with Robbery and Possession of a Firearm While Prohibited. 34-year-old Teresa Evenson of Nanaimo is charged with Robbery, Possession of a Prohibited Weapon, Possession of Stolen Property and Theft of a Motor Vehicle.

The investigation into this incident is ongoing as investigators believe there may have been other people present during this incident assisting the two known suspects, says Sergeant Shane Worth of the Oceanside RCMP. If anyone has any information about this incident, please contact Oceanside RCMP at (250) 248-6111.
