Two brothers are in custody after trying to flee from Mounties in Prince George when confronted after checking for unlocked cars. 

Cpl. Craig Douglass says police received a report at roughly 5:20 a.m. yesterday (March 18) of two suspicious men checking for unlocked vehicles in a parking lot on Commercial Crescent. 

Officers arrived and confronted the pair, who then tried to flee.

With the help of Taz, the Police Service Dog, both men were arrested shortly after, one of which had numerous outstanding arrest warrants. 

The B.C. Prosecution Service has approved the following charges against 40-year-old William Gerald McBride of Prince George: 

  • Resisting arrest
  • Possession of break-in instruments
  • Breach of release order

The B.C. Prosecution Service has also approved charges against 33-year-old Christopher Eugene McBride, who recently lived in Maple Ridge and Victoria: 

  • Resisting arrest
  • Possession of break-in instruments
  • Breach of release order
  • Failing to comply with probation 

Douglass says both of the accused are in custody until their next court dates, scheduled for later this month.
