A man is facing charges of mischief and theft after he allegedly took items from a vehicle Friday night.

Fort St. John RCMP say they received several calls about attempts to steal from unlocked vehicles in the Panorama Ridge area in the northeast portion of the city.

Police are looking to identify the person who told police about a shirtless male who stole items from his vehicle. This person told police he followed the suspect to the local hospital.

The alleged thief was arrested, and is now facing charges of mischief and theft.

Police are asking for the person who flagged down the police car shortly after midnight to call them at 250-787-8100 in reference to police file #2015-5294.

They also want to remind people to lock their vehicles when unattended, and to remove any valuables from the car when they are not present.
