Two stolen-goods suspects had appearance dates moved

Quesnel court cases stem from tip that led police to a Blackwater Road home where stolen goods found

Two of the accused in a stolen goods bust at a Blackwater Road home on Jan. 3 were back in Quesnel provincial court on Jan. 9.

According to a local RCMP press release, a Quesnel business owner, who had been a victim of break-and-enter, told police he had heard where his stolen items might be.

Police attended the residence, seized stolen goods, including the business owner’s property, other stolen goods and firearms.

They arrested three people.

In court on Jan. 9, Earl E. Roper faced four firearms-related charges, one charge of possession of stolen property worth more than $5,000, two charges of possession of stolen property worth less that $5,000 and one charge of a breach of an undertaking.

His appearance was adjourned because there wasn’t enough court time.

Roper’s next appearance is slated for Jan. 16.

Steven G. Schuk faced one charge of possession of stolen property worth more than $5,000.

His case was scheduled by a judicial case manager to another appearance date at the accused’s request.

Schuk’s next appearance is scheduled for Jan. 16.
