Thieves steal over $100,000 worth of property

A flat deck trailer and four snowmobiles were stolen from North Star Performance, and a vehicle from Monster Industries on Nov. 16.

A flat deck trailer and four snowmobiles were stolen from North Star Performance, towed away using a stolen vehicle from Monster Industries Ltd. during the night on Nov. 16.

RCMP Sgt. Rose says they are still investigating the thefts, worth over $100,000, and there are an unknown number of suspects involved.

The Monster Industries vehicle was recovered on Nov. 19, found stripped and burned on a forest service road between Quesnel and Prince George, Sgt. Rose said.

The snowmobiles and flat deck have not been found, he added.

The truck from Monster, towing the trailer and snowmobiles from North Star, were last seen heading east out of Houston on Highway 16, and anyone with information is asked to call the Houston RCMP at 250-845-2204 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


A 27 year old male was arrested, then charged on Nov. 19 for arguing with patrons at Idylwild Motor Inn while carrying a knife, said RCMP Sgt. Rose.

Sgt. Rose says he was charged for weapon possession and breaching probation, and sentenced to four days in jail and one year probation.


RCMP attended three single vehicle crashes, said Sgt. Rose.

Ten miles east of Houston on Highway 16, a vehicle was found in the ditch on Nov. 17, said Sgt. Rose.

Occupants were gone when RCMP came but later located in Houston with minor injuries. They refused to say who the driver was, so the case is still being investigated, said Sgt. Rose.

On Nov. 20, a driver lost control and hit the ditch on Highway 16 near Perow Loop, but there were no injuries or vehicle damage, Sgt. Rose said.

On Nov. 21 a vehicle was found on it’s roof in the ditch 30 kilometres west of Houston on Highway 16, reported to the Smithers RCMP, said Sgt. Rose.
