Prince George Mounties have caught a break and enter suspect who was breaching two different court orders.

On Sept. 8 just before 2 a.m. the Prince George RCMP received a report for an alarm at a business located on the 1200-block Fifth Avenue.

When frontline members arrived, they saw a window to the business was broken. Police located a man inside the business whom investigators identified as 25-year-old Prince George resident, Adrian Squinas.

Mounties say Squinas is well known to police.

Police then arrested Squinas for or breaking and entering as well as for breaching his court ordered curfew and other probation conditions.

Squinas remained in custody until he could attend court. The B.C. Prosecution Service has approved the following charges:

  • Break and Enter with Intent
  • Fail to Comply with Probation Order
  • Fail to Comply with Undertaking

“The increase in our presence and active patrols in Downtown Prince George, focusing on criminal activity in this space, is what enabled a prompt response that resulted in the suspect being caught at the scene,” stated Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

Police say this file is still under investigation.
