A Prince George man has been sentenced to 87 days in jail and 1 year probation after he was arrested driving a stolen truck earlier this month.
On Monday, December 17, a member of the Prince George RCMP’s general duty section observed a vehicle matching the description of a recently stolen Ford F-250 truck in Prince George. The licence plate was checked and found to have been stolen.
The lone male occupant was arrested without incident on the 2100 block of Quince Street. He was found to be in possession of several knives of various sizes, a small quantity of heroin and drug paraphernalia. The truck was confirmed to have been stolen from Ospika Boulevard on December 16.
Raymond Jarrod Pruden-Collins was charged with two counts of possession of property obtained by crime and two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking.
He pled guilty to one count of each of the above charges in court December 18. He was sentenced to 87 days in jail and one year probation.
During the first part of December, the Prince George RCMP have noticed yet another spike in stolen Ford F-series trucks in Prince George. The stolen trucks mostly range from model year 1995 to 2008. As a result of this trend, police have stepped up vehicle checks of Ford pickup trucks.
