Shortly after 12:30 Saturday morning Flin Flon RCMP received a report of two vehicle fires behind a business on McKeen Avenue. The Fire Department responded and residences in the immediate vicinity were evacuated as a safety precaution. The fires were extinguished and further investigation showed the incident was the result of arson.
Less than three hours later a report was received from a resident that two suspects had attempted to steal a truck from a yard. When the owner intervened she was assaulted and two female suspects ran off.
A 16 year old female from Flin Flon has been arrested and faces several charges including attempted robbery, assault, theft of a motor vehicle, mischief, breach of a youth probation order and possession of property obtained by crime. Additional charges out of Saskatchewan are anticipated.
A 13 year old Denare Beach girl was arrested yesterday afternoon and will face several charges including robbery with intent, theft of a motor vehicle, possession of property obtained by crime, two counts of mischief and two counts of theft.
