File # 2017-33827

Bait cars are regularly deployed in the city of Richmond, one could be parked next to your car right now. Each bait car is installed with state-of-the-art technology and closely monitored by police. If a bait car is stolen in Richmond, you can expect an immediate response.

On October 15, 2017, at 12:24 a.m., there was a bait car activation in the Jones Road area of Richmond. After activation the suspects drove a short distance before they abandoned the vehicle. Due to the swift coordinated efforts of Richmond RCMP patrol units, the Lower Mainland District Integrated Police Dog Service (IPDS) and Air One, officers arrested two males before they were able leave the neighbourhood.

The suspects, a 30 year old male from Surrey, and a 30 year old male from Langley, are known to police. Charges are pending and our investigation is on-going.

"Officers were able to quickly locate the suspects through the successful use of integrated police units in our community. The combined response and specifically police service dog Faulk, likely made a lasting impression on the suspects," says Constable Jon Francis. "Bait cars are everywhere Richmond and we are ready to respond. No car thief should ever feel safe in our community. If you steal a bait car, expect to get arrested."
