Acting on a complaint from citizens of Christina Lake members of Grand Forks RCMP responded to a theft in progress from some Canada Post mailboxes. While members were responding to Christina Lake they were able to intercept the suspects in a Dodge truck. Two males have been taken into custody. The Grand Forks RCMP were able to recover extensive amounts of suspected stolen property including a 2014 Dodge pickup.

The investigation is well underway, with members trying to identify who owns the recovered property.

Numerous Break and Enters to sheds and additional thefts from Canada Post mailboxes were subsequently discovered in Christina Lake.
