Additional frontline officers attended and located 39-year-old Andrew Hall, a known property offender, walking away from the area of the ATV and detained him for a Break and Enter investigation. The Peace Liard Police Services dog attended and assisted with the investigation.

"The timely report of an observant complainant and the quick response of our frontline officers brought this file to its best outcome," said Corporal Chris Christinger. "The offender is in custody and the ATV was recovered for the business, it was a job well done."

Andrew Hall was subsequently arrested and charges have been approved for Break and Enter and Commit an Indictable Offence, Theft over $5000, and Breach of Release order. Hall attended court and was remanded into custody for a future court appearance date.
