On November 3, while on routine patrol, an officer observed a vehicle driving in the area of Fisherman’s boat launch just after midnight. The vehicle was noted to be registered to a woman without a valid BC drivers licence. The officer conducted a traffic stop to ensure that the driver had a valid licence. It was determined that the woman driving the vehicle did not have a valid driver’s licence and also had a warrant out of Hazelton.

On the evening of November 2, Terrace RCMP received a report of a robbery at a local liquor store on the 4600 block of Lakelse Ave. Staff at the store reported that one male suspect entered the store wearing a black Halloween mask with a skull on the front stating, are you gonna give me a bottle? The suspect flashed a knife in his waistband, eventually drawing it out at the staff. The suspect made off with bottles of liquor and fled on foot. No one was injured in this incident. On November 3, RCMP identified and arrested the suspect in the liquor store robbery. The man has been charged with robbery and disguise with intent, and has been remanded in custody.
