Elk Valley car thieves expected to appear in court this week

The two male suspects who were arrested and taken into custody following a four-day crime spree across the Elk Valley will appear in court this week.

The suspects, who are in their twenties, were arrested two weeks ago for a series of offences that occurred between Alberta, the Elk Valley and Quesnel.

The pair stole three cars across the area during the crime spree.

Approximately 20 criminal charges are being laid against both suspects who have a pending court appearance.

Sgt. Will Thien said that the suspects suffer from addiction and mental illness problems and have not been cooperating well in local cells, as they are not heavily supervised.

A request has been made for the pair to be transferred to a more secure facility at the Kamloops Regional Corrective Center where they can be monitored around the clock.
