Justin Collins charged, remanded in custody

A Fort St. John man has been charged with theft and mischief after breaking into a business near Totem Mall this week.

Justin Collins has been remanded in custody until March 27 after his arrest Tuesday night shortly before midnight.

RCMP say they were called to a break-in at 9803 93 Avenue to find the front glass door and window displays of an unnamed business had been smashed, and merchandise stolen.

Collins was quickly found and arrested 20 minutes later near Mathews Park after a quick investigation by the responding officers, RCMP said.

He is charged with break and enter, theft under $5000, mischief under $5000, and possession of property obtained by crime, among other breaches.
