Two Campbell River men are back behind bars after committing crimes within hours of being released from jail.

Mathias Michael Thomas, 23, was charged with assault and breach of probation.

A guilty plea was entered and Thomas was sentenced to four months in jail.  Thomas had just been released from jail the previous day where he was serving a four-month term for breach of probation and theft.

Anthony Mark Galligos, 22, was charged with possession of stolen property and theft under $5,000. He entered a guilty plea to the possession charge and the theft charge was stayed.

Galligos was sentenced to 30 days in jail. He had just been released from jail earlier the same day where he had been serving a 30-day sentence for theft.

On the 29th at 4 p.m. police received a report of an assault on Dogwood Street near 9th Avenue. The victim was walking on a trail nearby when he was confronted by a group of four to five intoxicated males.

The victim was pushed and repeatedly punched by one of the males and his skate board was stolen.

The victim was not seriously injured. Police attended and a group of suspects was located nearby with the skateboard.  Two primary suspects were identified and arrested. Both are well known to police.


RCMP kept busy

In alignment with the Campbell River RCMP and City of Campbell River Crime Reduction and Prolific Offender Management strategy police conducted 41 probation and curfew checks on known and problem offenders during the month of September.
