Prince George RCMP witnessed more than they bargained for when they investigated a report of a male breaking into vehicles in the city earlier this week. Just before 2 a.m. on Oct. 17, officers attended the scene of the report, a parking lot on Ahbau Street, and observed a vehicle with a broken side window. Upon approach to the vehicle, officers located a male with his pants down performing a lewd act in the back seat of the vehicle.

The adult male was arrested and ordered to keep his hands up. He complied and was taken into custody.  The man was found in possession of knives, flash lights and tools, as well as electronic devices believed to have been stolen. He was also found to be breaching a number of conditions, including a curfew, from previous court appearances.

Other vehicles in close proximity to the arrest were also found to be damaged.
