Police arrest known offender in possession of guns, drugs

The Prince George RCMP continue to focus their attention on those profiting from the sale of street level drugs.

On May 6, members of the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit initiated an investigation into a person they suspected of selling drugs. Investigators subsequently arrested 40-year-old Mackenzie resident David Harding.

A police search of his vehicle yielded suspected fentanyl, suspected cocaine, drug paraphernalia, a pellet gun, two rifles, an assortment of ammunition, and multiple stolen ID cards. At the time of his arrest, Harding was under multiple court-imposed conditions, including one not to possess any firearms or ammunition. Police held Harding in custody to attend a virtual bail hearing.

The B.C. Prosecution Service approved the following charges against Harding:

  • Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm
  • Possession of a Firearm While Knowing it is Unauthorized
  • Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm in a Motor Vehicle
  • Carless Storage of a Firearm
  • Possession of a Weapon
  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000
  • Fail to Comply with Undertaking
  • Possession of a Scheduled Substance

 Harding is back in the community on a release order, with a scheduled court appearance next month.

This file is still under investigation.
