Ridge Meadows RCMP are asking for help after computers and other equipment were stolen from Davie Jones elementary earlier this week.
Outside doors to two classrooms at the school on Blakely Road in Pitt Meadows were pried open. Two portable projectors, an Apple computer, an Apple laptop computer, along with cables, headphones, a remote control, and several plastic storage bins were stolen.
The break-in occurred between 11 p.m. Tuesday and 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
A 28-year-old Mission woman was charged with driving without a licence and had her pickup truck impounded for a week after being caught driving too aggressively Wednesday by Ridge Meadows RCMP.
Police were called at 1:15 p.m. about a truck being driven at an excessive speed and swerving in its lane.
Police observed the in the 26900-block of Lougheed, then stopped it near 228th Street in Maple Ridge.
The woman did not have a valid driver’s licence, and was identified as a vehicle impound candidate due to her being convicted in the past for driving without a driver’s licence. That resulted in the vehicle impound.
“We want to thank the citizen who notified police about this person’s poor driving,” said RCMP Sgt. Dale Somerville.
“If you observe drivers who are operating their vehicle in a manner that is unsafe, please notify police about this by calling 911 as soon as you can safely do so.”
RCMP, with help, located an 82-year-old woman reported missing on Wednesday.
The woman has dementia. She was reported missing from her east Maple Ridge home just before noon.
Police began searching the area for her and were told she had been taken to a local church by a citizen who had seen her.
The church then arranged for the woman to be taken to a shelter, which is where police officers located her.
The woman is now safe, and the Ministry for Children and Families is also assisting the woman.
