A car is charred on Egret street

Late night crimes may be connected to June 10 home invasion

Incidents in the night following a morning June 10 home invasion and assault may be a continuation of a drug conflict.

Kitimat RCMP say there were more incidents throughout the night following a June 10 alleged home invasion on Nalabila Boulevard, and they say they believe they are all connected.

Cpl. Darryl Peppler with the Kitimat detachment said that a vehicle was found burned, and another report came in that people tried to kick in the door of another residence.

“We believe it to be all the same people,” he said, saying that police are treating this as a conflict in Kitimat’s drug trade.

“When you have a lot of people in the drug trade, they’re always going to have competition…and we’re having a lot of conflict right now,” he said, emphasizing that he’s not calling it a drug war in Kitimat.

He said that a van has been recovered that is thought to be involved somehow with these incidents and investigators are at work looking at the situation.

“We’re trying to piece this all together.”

Anyone with information regarding these incidents are encouraged to call the Kitimat detachment at 250-632-7111, or call Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477.
