The attentive action of a concerned citizen helped the Burnaby RCMP arrest two people in a recent business break-and-enter.
On Canada Day, at approximately 7 a.m., police responded to a report of a break-and-enter into some businesses in the 3700 block of Canada Way. When police arrived, they spotted a suspicious car in the area and were able to use the up-to-date information being relayed to them by the witness to arrest a 27-year-old Mission woman and a 27-year-old Maple Ridge man.
Both suspects were remanded in custody. Police are recommending multiple charges in relations to drugs, breach of conditions, break-and-enter, mischief and weapon-related offences.
In addition, the Burnaby RCMP continued investigating and were able seize a firearm and link the two people to a break-and-enter in Vancouver.
"This is a great outcome and we just want to keep encouraging citizens to immediately report suspicious activities or persons to the police," said Cpl. Brenda Gresiuk in a press release.
