Two Vanderhoof youth were arrested by local police on Monday, June 1.

In a June 2 news release, Vanderhoof RCMP Sgt. Rodney Guthrie stated that local Mounties responded to two reports of break-ins at local businesses that occurred in the early hours of Monday.

“In both cases windows were broken to gain access,” Guthrie said.

Items stolen included electronics and liquor.

Mounties were able to identify the suspects, and while they were trying to locate them, one suspect tried to steal a car from behind the Independent Grocery Store, while severely intoxicated, Guthrie said.

Both suspects have been arrested by local police and are facing charges of break-and-enter and theft. As per the Youth Criminal Justice Act, neither of the suspects will be named.
