Arrest made after three Christmas Eve break-ins in South Quesnel

Eighteen-year-old Tyson Sauve of Quesnel is set to appear in court Dec. 27

A Quesnel man was arrested following a pre-Christmas crime spree in South Quesnel.

At 4:07 a.m. on Dec. 24, Quesnel RCMP responded to an alarm at the South Quesnel Liquor Store. Nineteen minutes later, another alarm was reported from the Shell gas station. Four minutes after that, a third alarm sounded at the Canadian Tire. When the police attended, they confirmed that all three businesses fell victim to a break and enter.

The police flooded the area and located a man walking behind a neighbouring business, according to a press release from the RCMP. The officers linked the man to the break and enters through evidence from all three scenes, and he was arrested without incident.

“A quick response from the police led to a timely arrest and the recovery of stolen property during this event,” Sgt. Richard Weseen said in the release. “I think the man responsible just made the naughty list for his Christmas Eve antics.”

Tyson Sauve, an 18-year-old Quesnel resident, was charged with three counts of break and enter, three counts of mischief and one count of theft under $5,000. He is to appear in court today (Dec. 27).
