Three arrested after three year long investigation into Totem Mall break and enter

Crews replace the doors of the Totem Mall after a vehicle drove through them November 5, 2013

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John RCMP have arrested three people after a three year investigation into a break and enter at the Totem Mall in 2013.

On November 5, 2013, a stolen truck was used to ram through exterior doors at the Totem Mall.  Suspects then used the truck to breach the doors at Apollo Avenue in the Mall where they allegedly stole more than $19,000 in watches and sunglasses. They also caused over $40,000 in damage to the Mall.

After a three year investigation, the Fort St. John RCMP arrested Mitchell Jeff, Tammy Trotter and Rodger Davison Wednesday.

Jeff has been charged with: theft of a motor vehicle, three counts of possession of stolen property over $5000, break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence, possession of break and enter instruments and three counts of mischief over $5000. He remains in police custody.

Davis has been charged with theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of possession of stolen property over $5000, break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence, possession of break and enter instruments and three counts of mischief over $5000.

Trotter was charged with possession of stolen property under $5000.

Both Davis and Trotter were brought before the courts and were released on conditions with a pending court date. One of the two individuals released was re-arrested by police for breaching their release conditions shortly upon their release.

The RCMP believe this crime was solved by valuable information from the public and hard work from local RCMP members.
