Boxing Day noise complaints lead to recovered ATVs, motorcycles in Maple Ridge

Search also recovered shotgun and suspected drugs, say police

A Boxing Day noise complaint to police about a Maple Ridge residence resulted in one man being arrested and the recovery of stolen goods.

Just before 1 a.m. on Dec. 26, members from Ridge Meadows RCMP received a complaint of noise coming from a residence in the 11900-block of 220 Street.

During the course of the investigation, a man was arrested for drug-related offences and breaching a court order prohibiting him from possessing weapons.

Members from the Street Enforcement Unit were familiar with the residence, and based on evidence collected were able to obtain a search warrant.

The next day, members from that unit were joined by others from the Uniformed Community Response Unit and Emergency Response Team as they executed the search warrant at the home.

A large amount of stolen property was recovered, police said, including four all-terrain vehicles.

Three had been stolen from Maple Ridge and one from Coquitlam.

Also recovered were three dirt bikes, which had been stolen from Maple Ridge, and a Honda winch, valued at $1,500.

Police were able to link the items back to stolen property reports, and will be able to return them to the owners.

In addition, a loaded 12-gauge shotgun and hundreds of rounds of various ammunition were also seized, along with a small amount of suspected drugs.

Two people were detained during the search and later released without charges.

Derek Kilimnik, 35, of Maple Ridge, has been charged with one count of unlawfully possessing ammunition contrary to a court order, and one count of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

Sgt. Brenda Gresiuk said it’s important to keep records and be able to identify your valuables, and to always report any theft or suspicious activity to the police.

“If you see something, say something … you may have a valuable piece of information or clue that can assist the police in advancing an investigation,” she said.
