Three young men and a teen have been charged after a home-invasion-style break-in Saturday on Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge.

RCMP were called to a home at the east end of Dewdney Trunk Road around 3:20 p.m. after a report of “several males breaking into a house.”

Police located three suspects near 256 Street. A fourth was arrested on Sunday.

Cody Young, Steven Loughran, both 21, and Stefan Holowaychuk, 22, have all been charged with breaking and entering a dwelling house, and forcible confinement. Young and Loughran were also charged with failing to comply with conditions on a court-ordered release, while Holowaychuk had another charge of robbery.

A male young offender was also arrested and charged with break and enter, robbery, forcible confinement and breach of a peace-bond condition.

All were held in custody, with the three adults next appearing in court on Thursday. The youth’s next appearance is set for next Wednesday.

“Police believe this was a targeted attack,” said RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. “We would like to thank the citizens who assisted us in the initial stage of this incident.”

RCMP executed a search warrant on Monday to seek additional evidence to support the investigation.
