File # 2022-12167

A thorough and comprehensive investigation by Richmond RCMP frontline officers and Property Crime Unit has yielded a pattern of similar offences.
On May 18, 2022, two men, a 38-year old and a 34-year old, both from Vancouver were arrested by Richmond RCMP.

We believe that this duo may be involved with additional crimes beyond the scope of this one and in municipalities outside of Richmond.

During the last several months, several vehicles in the Steveston area have had their contents stolen. These vehicles were by and large, left unlocked. In addition, theft of contents from garages such as bikes or tools, or from homes with an adjoining garage were unlawfully entered through the use of a stolen garage remote.

The Richmond RCMP stress that this is not a novel type of crime.

Anyone who may have witnessed, or have information regarding this file, is asked to call Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212. Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crimestoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit them online at www.solvecrime.ca.
