Drug-related home invasion on Nak’azdli

Early this morning what appears to be a drug-related home-invasion took place on Nak'azdli reserve near Fort St. James.

Early this morning, several suspects entered a home on the Nak’azdli reserve in what RCMP suspect is a drug-related home invasion.

RCMP responded to the incident at a home on the Lower Road at 1:51 a.m. on Oct. 23

Three people were in the home at the time, and were assaulted and cash and drugs are believed to have been stolen.

While the thieves did have weapons, no firearms were involved in the incident, and only minor injuries resulted from the home invasion.

The house was reportedly known to RCMP, who also believe the incident to be targeted, and based on the items stolen, the suspects are also likely involved in the drug trade.

RCMP do not believe others in the community who are not involved in the drug trade will be at risk of these types of incidents.

The victims in the case have so far been uncooperative with the RCMP in their investigation.

“We’re trying to do our part,” said Staff Sergeant Thalhofer. “We’d like to do more.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Fort St. James RCMP at 996-8269 or Crime Stoppers.
