21-year-old faces numerous charges following alleged fuel theft

The Peace Regional RCMP has charged a 21-year-old Grimshaw man after an alleged theft of property and fuel incident in March.

According to police, members of the Peace Regional RCMP were made aware of “suspicious transactions” on fuel cards that occurred in numerous locations in Grimshaw, Peace River, and Fairview. Investigators say the transactions occurred over the course of several months and amounted to more than $20K in fuel.

The RCMP obtained surveillance footage which revealed in addition to the fuel, two stolen trailers were located in Grimshaw, which were recovered after a search warrant was obtained by law enforcement.

As a result of the initial investigation, 21-year-old Grimshaw resident Gessi Tywon James Larose was charged with several crimes including alleged possession of property obtained by crime, over $5,000, four counts of possession of property obtained by crime, less than $5,000, two counts of theft over $5,000, assault with a weapon, and others.
