Ridge Meadows RCMP have arrested a 32-year-old Pitt Meadows man and charged him with mail theft following a joint investigation with Canada Post.

Shawn Bradley Gillam appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court on Monday and was remanded in custody.

Mail theft will continue to be a priority, police add. They want residents to protect themselves by picking up their mail from their community mail boxes every day or if they’re away, they should get someone to do that for them.

Canada Post spokesperson Carley Smith said the post office continues “to work with local authorities who have recently arrested and charged two individuals.”

However, the Mounties say only one man has been arrested. “Mail theft continues to be a priority with the RCMP and Canada Post.,” Smith said.

She wouldn’t say how many households in Maple Ridge have been without mail service to the community mail boxes or how long the disruption in service will be.

“We are working hard to replace and repair any equipment that has been damaged and normal  mail delivery will resume as they are secure.

We appreciate the patience of those affected and ask all residents to call police if they notice any suspicious activity.”
