Two arrested in Maple Ridge after overnight break-in
A "high tech" surveillance system helped police capture two Maple Ridge men in their 20s, in a housing unit under construction overnight.
At around 12:40 a.m. this, police were called to a multi-unit housing construction site, located in the 10500 block of 240 Street.
The developer installed a security system that broadcasts a live feed and when they were notified of a breach contacted the police immediately, resulting in the quick capture, police explained.
"The live feed capability of the security system provided police the upper hand in responding, showing all aspects of the crime," said Ridge Meadows RCMP Sgt.Brenda Gresiuk. "Police first responders and Integrated Police Dog Services swooped in and caught the culprits red-handed."
Nothing had been taken, she noted, "but there was damage done to the doors, stairs, and windows."
The investigation is ongoing and is being assisted by the Integrated Forensic Identification Services.
