Suspected mail thief caught

While investigating another matter at about 2 a.m. March 16 on Central Street West, Prince George RCMP located and arrested a man suspected of stealing mail.

RCMP saw a man standing in the middle of the road and stopped to speak with this person. Police recognized the man from previous dealings and detained him in relation to their current investigation. As part of the investigation and for their own safety, police then asked the suspect to show them what was in his pockets.

“Police discovered the suspect had several pieces of mail and one piece of identification on him that were not in his name,” said Const. Jennifer Cooper of the Prince George RCMP. “The mail belongs to several different people who reside in an apartment building on Union Street that recently reported a mail theft. The identification belongs to a Prince George resident who reported their wallet stolen in April.”

Police arrested the man and brought him to the Prince George Detachment, where they confirmed his identity as 27-year-old Jordan Lalonde. Lalonde stayed at the detachment until he could attend court in the morning. The B.C. Prosecution Service approved charges of possession of stolen property under $5,000 and failing to comply with probation order. He is back in the community on a release order until his court appearance next month.
