Jordan Reno Murder Probe Results In 5 Arrests

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Mounties have arrested five people in the 2012 murder of a 22-year-old man, after a lengthy probe involving hundreds of officers in B.C. and Alberta.

Twenty-two-year-old Jordan Reno's body was found at a home in Prince George two and a half years ago.

Officers say an investigation into his death has focused on the possibility that the murder was targeted with ties to the illicit drug trade.

Police say four men have now been charged with first degree murder, and a 29-year-old woman is in custody with charges pending.

Expected in provincial court are 42-year-old Lyle Baker of Prince George, 47-year-old Kevin Zaporoski of Prince George, 35-year-old Bradley Barr of New Westminster and 26-year-old Dustin Lindgren of Edmonton.

Officers say the probe into Reno's death was thorough and relentless, and over a dozen specialized RCMP units and police agencies are being credited in the investigation. (250 News)
