Dog appears to be target of home invasion

Two men are in custody and facing charges following a home invasion involving firearms and apparently motivated by a dog.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. on Friday, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a possible home invasion taking place at a residence on the 1800 block of Tamarack Street.

Officers immediately attended the residence.  Two men attempted to flee the residence by the back door, but were arrested shortly thereafter.

The subsequent investigation has led officers to believe that the two suspects entered the residence brandishing what appeared to be firearms and demanded the occupants hand over a dog.  The two adult male occupants refused.  Police arrived and the suspects fled, leading to their arrest.

Search of the residence found a rifle, a BB gun that resembled an assault style rifle, and body armour.  All were believed to have been left behind by the suspects.

The suspects and one of the adult male victims were known to each other.  This incident appears to be a targeted attack.  A toddler was sleeping in the residence at the time of the incident.  No one, including the dog, was physically injured.

The BC Prosecution Service has approved the following Criminal Code charges against 23-year-old Shayn Robert Bulmer and 23-year-old Dylon Sadillo McLemore of Prince George:

  • Break and enter to commit indictable offence
  • Possession of a weapon for the purpose of committing an offence
  • Assault with a weapon (two counts)

Further charges may be considered.  Both accused have been remanded in custody and are scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday June 2.  The investigation is continuing.
