Six young people are facing recommended charges and one young man remains in custody relating to a theft of liquor from Larry’s House of Spirits.

In the early morning hours on May 13, 2012, a number of well-organized culprits broke into the cold beer and wine in the old Fort St. James Hotel building on Stuart Drive.

The suspects allegedly filled bins with bottles of spirits and made off on ATVs to stash the stolen liquor.

The RCMP were called to the scene at around 7:45 a.m..

Someone had reportedly discovered one suspect on the scene, and pinned them down before calling the RCMP.

Through further investigation, RCMP then attended a house party, where a number of young offenders were then taken into custody for possession of stolen property.

The one suspect remains in custody, and charges have been recommended against six youth, all will appear in court in June.
