An online video showing two men breaking into a space just below a section of Burnaby SkyTrain tracks has led to two arrests.
The video was uploaded to several different online platforms on May 17, according to a Metro Vancouver Transit Police news release.
It appeared to depict two men breaking into a secure area just below the tracks between the Production Way and Lake City Way stations.
“Once inside the restricted area, the men then allegedly used spray paint to vandalize the property,” stated the release.
Transit Police arrested one suspect on June 3. The other turned himself in on June 7.
Both now faces charges of mischief and breaking and entering, according to the release.
Both have been released pending court appearances scheduled for Aug. 29.
“Restricted areas often contain hazards and dangers that the general public are not aware of, which may include live wires,” Const. Peter Kwok stated in the release. “Both the alleged suspects had inadvertently exposed themselves to numerous, unnecessary risks.”
