Yellowknife, NWT – There’s a bit of a crime wave going on in the small community of Fort Resolution on the southeast shore of Great Slave Lake.
Two 16-year-old boys are facing multiple charges, including theft and arson, after a fire at a workshop last weekend caused tens of thousands of dollars damage to the building, surrounding outbuildings, as well as vehicles and tools stored inside.
RCMP executed search warrants at residences and seized property allegedly stolen from the buildings before the fire.
Meanwhile illegal drugs and firearms were seized from a residence in Fort Resolution in a raid last week.
Police have not said whether they’ve laid charges in that incident.
It remains under investigation.
