Man, 25, arrested Cliff camp

Apprehended on four outstanding warrants, find driver's licence, Care card

  • Jun. 2, 2015 5:00 p.m.

Police arrested a man on four outstanding warrants at the Cliff Avenue camp behind the Salvation Army on Thursday.

After they made the arrest, police found a drivers’ licence, B.C. Care Card and social insurance card that had been stolen in April from a local gym.

As a result, police are recommending charges of possession of stolen property and possessing identity documents against the 25-year-old.

Ridge Meadows RCMP civilian media spokesman Dan Herbranson said the arrest could have happened on any corner of the city.

He said there isn’t an unusual amount of calls about crimes from the camp, although there are lots of reports of illegal drugs and drinking.

But by the time police arrive on scene, that’s out of sight, he added.

 

Crash in east Maple Ridge

 

A 47-year-old Maple Ridge man suffered a possible broken arm and ankle, as well as head injuries after his Ford Fiesta hit a ditch in east Maple Ridge on Friday.

Ridge Meadows RCMP say the car went off the road westbound on 100th Avenue at 250th Street, on Thornhill, just before 9 a.m. The car then hit a ditch and a culvert.

Maple Ridge Fire Department had to extract the motorist, who was then flown to hospital by helicopter.

The injuries aren’t considered life threatening.
