Ridge Meadows RCMP, with assistance from the citizens on patrol volunteer team, arrested a 24-year-old, whom they call a "prolific offender" early Sunday morning.
The arrest came after the volunteers located a stolen car near an elementary school in central Maple Ridge. With help from the RCMP Lower Mainland District's Police Dog Services, the suspect was located nearby, said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.
"As a result of this excellent police work we have charges of possession of stolen property approved against Ryan Aaron Cameron Kaye," Dunlop said.
"This was all made possible by the good observations of our citizens on patrol volunteers. They alerted our on-duty police officers who quickly put the wheels in motion leading to the arrest of Mr. Kaye. This arrest is a very significant step toward crime reduction in our communities."
Kaye appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court on Monday, and he was remanded in custody until his next appearance. Charges include possession of stolen property and prohibited driving.
