Ridge Meadows RCMP arrested a 35-year-old prolific offender after he allegedly tried to break in to a business early Thursday morning.

The owner of The Kutting Korner on 225th Street in Downtown Maple Ridge discovered the break-in at 5:30 a.m., finding one of the store's windows had been broken and a blow torch left nearby.
