A Gitsegukla woman has a date in court after a crime spree in Terrace.
RCMP say they received reports of a woman using spray paint in various areas of the city from June 3rd to the 5th. Investigators say the calls progressed from graffiti on walls to spray painting vehicles, and then police vehicles.
Mounties say the suspect ended up spray painting a cabbie in the face and taking off with his vehicle before she was arrested June 8th.
In all, seven RCMP vehicles, four civilian vehicles, numerous city properties, and several businesses were vandalized. Police recovered the stolen taxi with extensive damage, although the driver was not seriously injured.
The combined efforts of Terrace General Duty assisted by the Terrace General Investigation Section and the Terrace Forensic Identification Section allowed for a suspect being quickly identified through physical evidence, witness statements, and surveillance from local businesses. The community really came together to assist us with this investigation which led to a quick arrest, says Sgt. Mike Robinson, Operations Support Non Commissioned Officer in Charge Terrace Detachment.
RCMP say 27-year-old Kim Archambault is charged with robbery and is expected to appear in court June 10th.
Terrace RCMP are asking any witnesses to the incidents to come forward as well as to let police know about any related and unreported incidents.
