Pitt Meadows man charged in break-in spree

Mark William Foreman taken into custody Sept. 28 on the Katzie First Nations Reserve

Police have arrested a man suspected in a string of break-and-enters that took place this summer.

Ridge Meadows RCMP’s Street Enforcement Unit took Mark William Foreman into custody on Sept. 28 on the Katzie First Nations Reserve in Pitt Meadows.

Police allege the 37-year-old broke into garages, houses and vehicles between Aug. 10 and Sept. 28 to steal cars, sporting goods and threatened a homeowner with a weapon on one occasion.

“He is well known to police, and can become violent when cornered,”  Insp. David Fleugel said of Foreman. “He did resist our members when they were making the arrest, but he was quickly taken into custody.”

Foreman has been charged with four counts of break-and-enter, two counts of possession of stolen property, and one count each of assault with a weapon and theft.

He appeared in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court on Sept. 30 and has been remanded in custody until Thursday.
