Ridge Meadows RCMP arrest robbery suspect

Charges stem from three separate incidents in Surrey and one in Pitt Meadows

  • Jul. 21, 2015 6:00 p.m.

A man suspected in four armed robberies, including the unsuccessful robbery of a Pitt Meadows gas station, was arrested in Maple Ridge early Friday morning.

Shortly before 1 a.m. an officer with the Lower Mainland Police Services Integrated Police Dog Services located a vehicle that was associated to the man. The vehicle was stopped on the Lougheed Highway near 207 Street, where Ridge Meadows RCMP arrested the 29-year-old suspect.

“This arrest fully illustrates the advantages police in the Lower Mainland have with integration and better communication between police,” said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. “With the dog unit readily available in Maple Ridge, this resulted in the arrest of this robbery suspect.

“The armed robbery charges stem from three separate cases in Surrey and one attempt at an Esso gas station in Pitt Meadows. Ridge Meadows RCMP investigators had worked with their counterparts in Surrey, which provided necessary communication that made this arrest seamless.” The suspect was taken to court in Surrey, where he was to appear.
