On December 29, 2022, the Fort St John RCMP requested the assistance of the public in identifying two suspects believed to have stolen a Silver 2006 Volkswagen Golf from the Fort St John airport parking lot.

Through follow up investigation the vehicle was located that same day and returned to it’s owner who was very happy to have it back.

The media release was the key investigational tool that helped to make the public aware of what occurred and made the recovery of the vehicle possible, said Constable Chad Neustaeter, Media Relations Officer for the Fort St John RCMP. The investigation determined no criminal offence had occurred and the suspects will not face any charges.
