Man sentenced to 18 months jail for break and enter in Prince George

By Norman Galimski

A Prince George man well-known to RCMP has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for a home invasion and a one year probation for a Sept. 26 dangerous driving incident near Vanderhoof.

Cameron Gregory Boyes was found guilty on May 16 for his role in a break and enter to commit an indictable offence, as well as charges of assault with a weapon, possession of a prohibited firearm and possession of a firearm contrary to order.

Boyes was also sentenced on the same day to one year of probation for dangerous operation of a vehicle. Last year, the man was involved in an incident where he was driving at excessive speeds and collided with another vehicle without stopping while travelling through Vanderhoof.

During the incident, police roadblocks were set up in the Beaverly area to stop the driver who attempted to evade them multiple times even after the successful deployment of a spike belt.

“The vehicle was located not far from where the spike belt was used and, with the assistance of a police service dog, the driver was located and arrested,” Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Prince George RCMP Media Relations Officer, said.

Boyes has had multiple encounters with the law and has a history with RCMP dating back to September of 2017.
