Grand Forks pair charged in Castlegar B&E

Suspects found with stolen goods near South Castlegar crime scene

Castlegar RCMP, in a June 12 press release, have stated that two Grand Forks men remain in custody facing charges of Breaking and Entering, and possession of stolen property stemming from a June 10 incident.

Officers reportedly responded to a residential alarm at just after 4 a.m. in the south end of Castlegar. Entry had apparently been gained and numerous items seemed to be missing.

The two suspects, 52-year-old Royburne  Osmond, and 32-year-old Theodorus Sactouris, were located nearby with some of the homeowner’s belongings in their possession. They have been remanded in custody to appear before a judge on June 13.

The homeowner was away at the time of the incident and was happy to get all her belongings back. Police have no reason to suspect this house or owner was specifically targeted – it was likely a crime of opportunity.

With the summer months and hot weather upon us, we more often leave windows and doors open. Police urge people to ensure their homes are locked up and secure if they are not going to be home.
