Police arrested one man and a second suspect is still at large after a break-in at a Whitehorse food distribution company over the weekend.

In the early evening on Sunday, Whitehorse RCMP were called to G-P Distributing Incorporated in Porter Creek.

According to an RCMP press release, two men with their faces covered entered the building through a door in the back.

“Upon seeing an employee, the males ran out the back and left the area in an older model Ford pickup truck,” the release says.

The vehicle was later spotted in Riverdale and then the Miles Canyon Road area.

Police searched the area using a trained dog to track the suspects.

One suspect was apprehended by the police dog and its handler. He was taken to Whitehorse General Hospital for treatment. Police have not released his name or whether he is facing any charges.

The second suspect, Jerrid Bergeron, is still at large. “There is no current indication that he is a threat to the community,” the release says.

If anyone in the public has information about the location of Bergeron, they are encouraged to contact the Whitehorse RCMP at 667-5555.
