Ridge Meadows RCMP arrested three men and seized weapons and drugs Thursday after a reported break-in.

RCMP were called to a home in the 23600 block of 114A Avenue on Oct. 22 at about 10:15 p.m.

Neighbours reported a possible break-in to a home.

With the assistance of the Integrated Police Dog Services, three suspects were taken into custody, without incident.

Investigators seized a loaded firearm, two prohibited weapons and a quantity of what police believe to be cocaine.

“The firearm and weapons demonstrates the propensity for a violent confrontation did exist,” said Cpl. Brenda Winpenny. “However, police took the proper precautions and prevented an opportunity for the suspects to attempt an escape, or commit a violent act.”

Cody McKenna, 27, John MacInnis, 22, and Kristopher Dobell, 25, have all been charged.

McKenna is currently before the courts on charges of attempted murder, relating to a 2013 shooting at the Haney Public House.

They all made a first appearance on Oct. 23 and were remanded in custody.

 

Body recovered

A month-long search for a 26-year-old Surrey woman ended Saturday when the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team recovered the woman’s body from Alouette Lake.

“From the start, this case has been one of the top priorities of Ridge Meadows RCMP,” said Const. Chris Wilson. “First of all, I want to express heartfelt condolences to the family.  This has been a month-long ordeal, and police are hopeful the recovery will bring some closure.”

Four people were in a boat that was taking on water in Alouette Lake on Sept. 20.

Three swam safely to shore, but the woman did not make it.

“Investigators want to acknowledge the efforts of Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue, who spent hours scouring the shoreline in the hope the young woman made it there safely,” said Wilson. “Unfortunately we now know this was not the case.

The RCMP Underwater Recovery Team located and recovered the woman’s body approximately 100 feet below the surface, utilizing the sonar and a remote operated vehicle.

The name of the victim is being withheld at the request of the family.

 

Mark’s theft

Mark’s Work Wearhouse in Maple Ridge was broken into Thursday, just after midnight.

The culprit stole sunglasses – Maui Jims and Zeal brands – worth thousands of dollars.

He also tried to steal a rack of jackets, but was unsuccessful.

Anyone with information about this crime can call Crime Stoppers.

 

RCMP hit cyclist

Serious injury was avoided when an Ridge Meadows RCMP officer hit a cyclist in a roundabout in South Bonson on Saturday.

Just before 2 p.m., a cyclist was hit by the police SUV, a Chevrolet Tahoe, at the intersection of Airport Way and Harris Road.

A police spokesman characterized it as a low-speed collision, resulting in minor injuries that did not require the man on the bike to need an ambulance. He was knocked off balance, but not right to the ground. There was damage to the bike and scratches on the SUV.

The RCMP supervisor spoke with the victim, who said he was fine, but shaken up, and called it a “non-issue” that “could have been worse.”
