Three charged following break-in at local gym

Three people have been charged in connection with a break-and-enter at a gym in the 700-block of Central Street East April 20.

Police received a report the gym was broken into during the night and that many items from inside were missing. The investigation revealed that various supplements, clothing, tanning supplies, food and equipment were stolen. The total value in lost merchandise was approximately $10,000.

“Some of the stolen items were located outside near the business; investigators followed the tracks left behind in the snow and located three suspects nearby with many of the stolen items,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, media spokesperson for the Prince George RCMP. “The individuals, one man and two women, were arrested for possession of stolen property and held for court. The stolen property was seized by investigators and returned to the business owner.”

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

Ryan Ronnin Felix:

  • Break and enter to commit theft
  • Possession of stolen property over $5,000

Shannon Lee Haskell:

  • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000

Kateri Haskel:

All three suspects are known to police. Felix will remain in custody until his next court appearance; Shannon Haskell and Kateri Haskel were released on undertakings with future court dates.
