An investigation was opened in April 2021 into a break and enter of a residence in Louis Creek. The owner of the home was recently deceased. Various items were taken during the break and enter incident.

Barriere RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision two weeks later in McLure, B.C., where belongings to the deceased were found, as well as a number of cheques, which were later determined to have been used to fraudulently purchase a vehicle.

“As a result of the investigation, a warrant has been issued for the arrest of 30-year-old Trevor James Richardson of Barriere, for one count of theft of motor vehicle and two counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000.”

The information was released Sept. 10. Richardson is described as a Caucasian man and 6 feet four inches tall, weighing 165 pounds. He has brown hair, blue eyes and a fair complexion.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts are asked to contact the Barriere RCMP detachment at (250) 672-9918 or the police detachment in your jurisdiction.
