A garage door opener left in a car was used by thieves to break into the garage in Maple Ridge providing them easy access to a much better loot.
The break-in took place in the 21900-block of River Road sometime between 9 p.m. on Tuesday and 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Ridge Meadows RCMP said thieves broke into a parked car and stole a GPS, compact discs as well as the remote door opener.
Shortly after, the thieves opened up the nearby garage and stole a laptop computer and a framing nailer from it. Police are asking the public to remove any items of value from their vehicles, especially remote door openers.
Police dogs were used to track down a Maple Ridge man wanted by police on an outstanding warrant.
A Ridge Meadows Mountie noticed the 25-year-old acting suspiciously in the area of 222nd Street and 122nd Avenue on Tuesday around 3 p.m.
As soon as the officer approached the man, he dropped his bike and ran off.
Police dogs were used to search the area and the man was found a short time later in nearby bushes.
Although he didn’t commit a crime, he was arrested on outstanding warrants.
