Creston RCMP believe they have their men, or boys, after two teenagers were arrested early on Sunday morning after a “mini crime spree”, Cpl. Charlotte Joa said on Monday.

RCMP officers and a police dog entered into a lengthy chase late on Saturday night before eventually nabbing the pair at a construction site in Crestglen Mobile Home Park, she said.

The teens, who cannot be identified because they are youths, are suspects in several crimes reported on Sunday morning, In short succession, RCMP received complaints about a break and entry on Scott Street — where thieves stole keys and left in the resident’s vehicle (it was later found in Kootenay River) — and other break and entry and vehicle theft attempts.

“They are also suspects in the armed robbery at the dollar store last week,” Joa said.
