A car struck a moose Dec. 27, 47 kilometres east of Prince George on Highway 16, killing a female passenger.

Drugs, cash seized
Prince George RCMP seizes drugs, cash, and two firearms just after midnight Dec. 31 while executing a search warrant at a residence in the 1400 block of Jarvis Street. Police took three males and one female into custody. One of the firearms had been altered by cutting off the barrels and was loaded when it was found. Charges are pending, and the investigation continues, police said.
Pet owners advised
The Prince George RCMP advises dog owners to ensure their pets are properly secured and moved indoors if they will be away from home. Police said over the last several months a number of dogs have been stolen from their yards.
“While the breed and value may be the cause, for most owners the pet is especially important to the owners and children on a much deeper emotional and personal level,”Const. Mike Caira said.
