Local suspect Schuk to face B&E charges at the end of April

Schuk faces charges from a Maple Drive B&E as well as stolen goods charges

Steven Gerald Schuk was in Quesnel provincial court on April 18 to face charges of being in possession of stolen goods, stemming from a Jan. 3 RCMP bust on Blackwater Road.

He will be back in court at the end of April to fix a date for the above offence.

However, Quesnel RCMP arrested a suspect in connection to a break-and-enter at a home on Maple Drive in South Quesnel on April 9.

Schuk is currently in custody and charges have been laid for: theft under $5,000; mischief; and being unlawfully in a dwelling house with intent to commit an indictable offence.

On April 18, he was given an opportunity to consult legal counsel.

He will back in court to face these charges and others from the April 9 B&E.

Circumstances

Quesnel RCMP attended the Maple Drive home at 3:05 p.m., after the homeowner received an intrusion alarm call from his alarm company.

The homeowner was not at the residence.

Upon arrival, police found the suspect had already fled the scene but after reviewing video surveillance, were able to identify him.

They located the suspect nearby after canvassing the area, and it is alleged that he had some of the stolen property on his person when arrested.
