Four men are in custody after Ridge Meadows RCMP interrupted a home invasion last week.
Just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, police were called to the 28300-block of 96 Avenue about armed intruders forcibly entering a home.
Police responded and arrested two suspects.
With the assistance of the Integrated Police Dog Services, a third man was located and arrested on the property, while a fourth suspect was later located away from the residence.
“The first responders did an amazing job in making the initial arrests and maintaining continuity of the scene,” said Cpl. Brenda Winpenny.
“Investigators feel this was not a random incident, but a targeted attack.”
Charged with break and enter and unlawful confinement are John Alex MacInnis, 23, Tristan Wight, 20, Malcolm Lyle Cooper, 37, and Marcos Bradley Cardoso, 25.
All accused live in other jurisdictions in the Lower Mainland.
“Although shaken, none of the occupants of the home were injured,” Winpenny added.
The investigation is now in the hands of Ridge Meadows RCMP’s Serious Crimes Unit.”
