On Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at approximately 2:30 pm, a concerned citizen in North Vancouver called the RCMP to report seeing a suspicious male leave their neighbour’s residence carrying a suitcase. The North Vancouver RCMP responded by conducting patrols in the Sowden Street area looking for the person of interest. The police were able to confirm that a break and enter had just occurred at the residence.
About 10 minutes later, police received a call from another concerned citizen living about 1 kilometre away from the previous incident, reporting that a vehicle had just pulled into a parking lot, with the driver acting suspicious. Police located the vehicle, spoke to the lone driver and subsequently arrested the 46 year-old male from New Westminster.
The suspect possessed over $50,000 of stolen property that he had allegedly stolen from the recent break and enter. The accused, Steven Jones who is well known to police has been remanded in custody with a court date set for July 18, 2017.
This investigation would not have had the success it had without the general public calling in reports of suspicious activities, said Supt. Chris Kennedy, Officer in Charge of the North Vancouver RCMP.
Police are now able to return the stolen property to the victim and we thank those who took the time to get involved!
