On Friday, Nov. 18, members of the Northern Rockies RCMP executed a search warrant at a residence in the 5500 block of 48th Street in Fort Nelson.
The warrant was granted by the courts after police received information to support that stolen items were believed to be stored inside the residence.
As a result of the investigation, police located three stolen firearms, a large quantity of ammunition, various other stolen items, and a quantity of suspected methamphetamine.
35-year-old Fort Nelson resident Nathan Dejonghe was arrested by police, and charged for firearms related offences. He was subsequently released after appearing before a judge, with a court date scheduled in December 2022.
This press release was released by North District RCMP on Nov. 23, 2022.
