Ridge Meadows RCMP arrested a Maple Ridge woman Thursday on allegations she stole items from a bait car.

The 19-year-old was taken into custody by the detachment’s Street Enforcement Unit.

RCMP said she broke into a bait car on two separate occasions and stole a backpack that held a laptop computer, left in the car by police.

Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said the thefts were captured on surveillance video.

The woman was held in custody overnight for a court appearance Friday.

“Police want to remind thieves that bait cars are everywhere,” said Dunlop.

“If you steal one, or break into one, you will go to jail.”
