Hope man a suspect in home invasion

Suspect found on Hope's back roads with stolen possessions

A Hope man has been charged with several counts related to an alleged home invasion.

Brian Trottier, 27, was arrested and charged with robbery, break and enter and using an imitation firearm. He is being held in custody and was expected to appear in court on Thursday, July 5, after press time.

The incident leading to the charges happened on June 28 at about 6:20 a.m.

The suspect entered a Hope residence while the victim was home, and stole the victim’s purse. The purse contained vital information and other property.

The victim recognized the suspect and was able to provide police with a physical description as well as a description of the suspect vehicle. The suspect, Trottier, is known to police.

They later found a vehicle matching the suspect vehicle at a motel near Lake of the Woods and waited for the vehicle to leave the motel.

Hope RCMP members stopped the suspect vehicle on American Creek Forest Service Road off Highway #1 without incident.

“The vehicle was searched and the victim’s property was found as well as a substance police believe to be crack cocaine,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.  “This is a good example of good old fashioned police work and we were able to return the property back to the victim which is always very gratifying.”
