A 17-year-old boy has been arrested after a break-in at a Riverdale pizza joint Monday night.

At approximately 7 p.m. Whitehorse RCMP got a call that a witness had seen someone break the window at Epic Pizza, enter the premises, and leave with bottles of alcohol. The caller provided a detailed description of the suspect and which way he went.

“Whitehorse RCMP located the suspect travelling northbound on Lewes Boulevard by the Riverdale Bridge, attempting to operate a bicycle whilst holding three bottles of liquor at the same time,” police say in a statement.

A 17-year-old was arrested. He has since been charged with break and entering.

He cannot be named under Canada’s Youth Criminal Justice Act.

“In this incident we are thankful that an alert citizen not only called the police instantly, they also provided an excellent description and direction of travel,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Natasha Dunmall.
