The break and enter on Hill Avenue that police responded to Tuesday was actually a home invasion.
Shortly after 6:30 a.m. the Prince George RCMP responded to a call for assistance on the 4700 block of Hill Avenue.
When frontline members arrived on the scene, they discovered a recent home invasion at the residence. Witness reports state multiple suspects fled the scene before police arrival. At this time, police believe it was a targeted event and there is no risk to the public. If anyone in that area has video surveillance or saw any suspicious activity at that time, we encourage them to speak with police.
The Prince George RCMP are still looking to make contact with the primary resident of that address, James Andrew Schooley, 43, to ensure his well-being. Police encourage Schooley to contact the detachment main line at 250-561-3300 to speak with members.
The investigation is ongoing.
