RCMP seek help to identify home invasion suspect

Oak Point, New Brunswick – The Northeast District RCMP is seeking information from the public that could help identify a woman suspected of committing a home invasion in Oak Point, N.B., and her accomplices.

On November 20, 2016, shortly after 4:30 p.m., members of the Neguac and Tracadie RCMP responded to a report of a home invasion on Route 11.

A man and a woman broke into a residence and allegedly attempted to rob the homeowners. The suspects used pepper spray to subdue the two residents. One of the occupants restrained the male suspect until police arrived, but the female suspect, believed to be in her early 20s, fled in a vehicle that was waiting outside, with an unknown number of other individuals inside. Neither of the residents was seriously injured.

The vehicle, a blue Pontiac G6, was located several hours later, and was determined to have been reported stolen by the owner.

The 20-year-old man who was arrested at the scene, Nicholas Lagacé, of Bathurst, has been charged with breaking and entering, robbery and obstruction of a police officer. He was remanded into custody until his next court appearance on December 5.

The investigation is ongoing, and police are seeking information from the public that could help identify the female suspect and the other occupants of the vehicle in which she fled. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Tracadie RCMP at 506-393-3000. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca, by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by texting TIP212 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637).
