Fraser Lake fight, local home inspector investigation

Fraser Lake fight

At 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday March 23rd, Members of the Fraser Lake RCMP responded to a report of a large fight near the 100 block of Chowsunket Avenue.

On arrival it was discovered that two males were stabbed as a result of a physical altercation. They were treated by Fraser Lake Volunteer Fire Department and BC Ambulance paramedics. They were transported by ambulance to Vanderhoof hospital where the injures were discovered to be non life threatening.

Four suspects were subsequently located and arrested with assistance from Prince George Dog Services and Vanderhoof RCMP without incident. The accused all remain in custody awaiting to appear before the courts.

Due to the ongoing nature of this investigation no further information is being released at this time.

If anyone has any information that can assist in this matter please contact the Fraser Lake RCMP at (250)699-7777.

The Vanderhoof RCMP detachment lodged 49 files, which included 6 prisoners, in the past week.

Files include causing disturbance, driving while disqualified, breaching probation, shoplifting, and assault.

Two road blocks by general duty officers and the North District Traffic Services yielded no impaired driving incidents.


Local home inspector license suspension

Vanderhoof’s RCMP has imposed conditions on the home inspector to address further concerns to the public, following charges of mischief that were laid on March 14.

In general, conditions — varying from house arrest to address or employment change notification — are imposed on individuals to prevent them from committing other offences or victimizing others, the police said.

On March 18, Consumer Protection BC suspended the license of Gary Hawrys, operator of Points North Home Inspections.
