Man facing charges for car theft

Citizens on Patrol help police nab a prolific offender

  • Sep. 26, 2013 6:00 p.m.

A man suspected of stealing a car was arrested by police early Sunday with the help of RCMP volunteers.

Two members of Citizens on Patrol spotted the stolen car near an elementary school and alerted police officers to their discovery.

Ryan Aaron Cameron Kaye was found nearby, with the help of a police dog.

The 24-year-old is now facing charges of possessing stolen property.

“This was all made possible by the good observations of our Citizens on Patrol volunteers.  They alerted our on duty police officers who quickly put the wheels in motion leading to the arrest of Mr. Kaye,” said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.

Ridge Meadows RCMP allege Kaye is a prolific property crime offender who was bound by court-ordered conditions at the time of his arrest.

Kaye appeared in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court on Monday and was remanded in custody until his next appearance later in the week.

He is facing charges of possessing of stolen property, driving while prohibited and several counts of breaching probation.
