  • Dec. 22, 2015 12:00 p.m.

Ridge Meadows RCMP have charged a Maple Ridge couple with possession of stolen property following a search of a Silver Valley home.

Police searched a rental home on north 232nd Street on Dec. 3 and found stolen items, and what they believe are illegal drugs.

“This matter is before the courts, but what I can tell you is this complex investigation began a number of months ago after numerous complaints from citizens,” Const. Amanda Harnett said in a release.

Walter Barry Rogers, 63, has been charged with four counts of possession of stolen property.

Wendy Lynne Hanson, 57, also faces four counts of possession of stolen property.

Both appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court on Dec. 16.

Woman hit by truck on Monday night

A 41-year-old Maple Ridge woman is in hospital with serious injuries after being hit by a pickup truck Monday night at about 6:20 p.m.

She was crossing the Lougheed Highway near 217th Street, but wasn’t in a marked crosswalk, said Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Brenda Winpenny.

The accident happened just east of 216th Street, in front of the Quality Inn.

The driver of the truck remained on scene and was cooperative. Speed and alcohol have been ruled out as contributing to the cause of the accident.

Winpenny said it’s a dark part of the highway and that people should use only the marked crosswalks at 216th and 222nd streets.
