UPDATE: No word why RCMP surrounded motorcycle wear shop in Maple Ridge

IHIT not involved; door smashed.

Ridge Meadows RCMP are no longer on scene at a downtown Maple Ridge store, just off Lougheed Highway.

Dan Herbranson, spokesperson for Ridge Meadows RCMP, still could not say Thursday morning why multiple police cars stationed around Louis Leather shop for two days.

No arrests were made and no outside police agencies were involved, Herbranson said.

Yellow police tape surrounded the motorcycle wear shop on Selkirk Avenue, while three police officers were stationed around the area Tuesday and Wednesday.

The door to the business on the south side of the building had police tape hanging from it and appeared to have been smashed in.

Police confirmed that the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is not involved.

RCMP first appeared at the location around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.

“The public has nothing to fear, no safety concerns,” Herbranson said then.

“No idea what they’re doing there.”

Ridge Meadows RCMP said later on Tuesday that the investigation is not related to any recent incident in Maple Ridge.

The entire parking lot surrounding the store on both sides was blocked off by police tape.

Herbranson said then it’s not known when more details will be released or how long the area will remain secured.
