Ridge Meadows RCMP executed a search warrant on Thursday at a house on Garden Street in downtown Maple Ridge.

Ridge Meadows RCMP arrested a man and a woman Friday for mail theft.

Police were initially notified by Canada Post of a possible theft from a community mail box near 210 Street and 132 Avenue in Maple Ridge.  Information provided led them to a house on Garden Street.

Officers then observed the two suspects, a 37-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman, getting into a car and arrested them. Assorted tools police believe were used for mail theft were seized from the car.

RCMP obtained a search warrant and seized stolen mail – from Maple Ridge, North Vancouver and West Vancouver – from the house.

“Theft from the mail continues to be a problem throughout the Lower Mainland,” said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said. “We ask our citizens to be aware of these thefts, and please report any suspicious activities around any of our community mail boxes.”

The man and woman were released from custody on a promise to appear in court in March.
