A break and enter suspect was arrested after he was caught sleeping on the couch of a home in North Nechako.

The incident began shortly before 2 a.m. on Sunday, February 18  when a resident on the 5100-block of North Nechako Road reported a rock had been thrown through a window of their home and they could hear a man talking outside. 

While police officers were responding to this report and searching for the suspect, a second report came in from the 3200-block of Riverview Road.

The report indicated that a man walked into a person’s home and left after asking the home owner to call 9-1-1. 

Then police received another call from a resident on the 3300-block of Rosia Road after they heard someone attempt to gain entry through their front door.

The suspect was caught by police around 5:30 a.m. at a residence on the 3500-block of Rosia Road, where he was located sleeping on a couch at that home.

“Investigators are extending their thanks to the people who contacted police with information on the suspect’s whereabouts, several of whom could see him on their video surveillance passing through the area, as it assisted in ultimately tracking him down,” states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

The suspect was arrested by police officers and transported to the Prince George RCMP Detachment, where he was released back into the community later that day with a future court date. The suspect is known to police.
