Bail hearing scheduled for Bumper to Bumper theft suspect

Matthew Emmanuel Lucani will appear in Quesnel Provincial Court Sept. 25

Matthew Emmanuel Lucani appeared in Quesnel Provincial Court on Sept. 11 and has received a date for a bail hearing.

Lucani will appear on Sept. 25 for the hearing, which will decide whether bail will be granted or denied. Lucani is currently in custody after being charged with break and enter with intent to commit an offence and theft of $5,000 or under.

The charges relate to a July 18 incident, in which Lucani allegedly broke into local business Bumper to Bumper Auto Parts Plus.

Police responded to an alarm at Bumper to Bumper in the early hours on July 18, where they found the business’ glass door smashed.

Later that morning, at around 9 a.m., patrolling RCMP members found and arrested Lucani.

Lucani was also in court yesterday on an unrelated charge stemming from a June 29, 2018 offence. He is charged with possessing a weapon for dangerous purpose and breach of probation. He is not in custody on these charges and his next appearance for this case is Sept. 25, to consult counsel, according to B.C. Court Services Online.
