A car was left tireless after someone took all four of its wheels and left it on wooden blocks.
On Jan. 10, around 8:25 a.m., Terrace RCMP received a report regarding the theft on the 4500 block of Scott Avenue. Video surveillance showed a person removing the tires around 1:15 a.m. and tossing them over the fence on the north side of the property, then leaving on foot around 2:15 a.m.

Man in custody after a string of offences
File # 2020-333
Resisting arrest led to more charges for a Terrace man wanted on breach and theft offences.
Around 4:40 p.m., Friday Jan. 10, a Terrace RCMP officer was patrolling downtown when a man was observed jaywalking in front of oncoming vehicles on Park Avenue and Kalum Street.
The officer recognized the man as being arrestable for breaching his release conditions, pulled over, and told the man he was under arrest. The man walked away and then resisted arrest, which required additional assistance to control and handcuff him.
Anthony Keenan Pearson, age 20 of Terrace BC, was held in custody for court on two counts of breach, one count of theft from December, and resisting arrest. A court appearance was scheduled for Jan. 13, 2020, during which he was released by a judge with conditions.

Police attended, investigated, and the driver was brought back to the detachment to provide breath samples. Samples taken provided a reading of more than double the blood-alcohol content required for the Criminal Code offence of exceeding .08 mgs per 100 mls of blood, in addition to the offence of impaired driving.
A man was released with a court date and violation tickets.
