Back and forth

Dispute over cigarettes turns violent at Tache Reserve near Fort St. James.

  • Apr. 13, 2014 8:00 p.m.

April 5 at 5:44 a.m., RCMP responded to an incident at Tache Reserve.

A suspect had reportedly stolen smokes from the home of the victim.

The victim of the theft then reportedly tracked down the suspect and threatened to stab the man who had stolen his pack of cigarettes.

The suspect in the original theft then was said to have further retaliated by returning to the victim’s residence with an axe and threatening him in return.

A fist fight then ensued from this confrontation.

No one wanted to press charges in the incident, however, and RCMP attended to break up the fight and prevent further escalation, but then closed the investigation.
