RCMP have arrested two Williams Lake residents in relation to thefts from evacuation zones.
Mounties say they made a routine traffic stop in the city earlier this week. During a search of the vehicle, officers say they found a television believed to have been taken from a break and enter at an evacuated home in the Wildwood area July 8th.
Based on the vehicle stop, RCMP searched two homes in Williams Lake where they discovered several items thought to have been taken from three other evacuated homes.
RCMP took a 27-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman into custody. Both are facing possible charges relating to break and enter and possession of stolen property.
Mounties say they will continue to patrol evacuated zones 24 hours a day and are encouraging anyone who notices suspicious activity to contact police.
