Fajardo was arrested at Vancouver International Airport on April 17, and the charges relate to incidents that took place between March 2 and April 19, at or near Vancouver International Airport.

Police are continuing to investigate, and a number of other law enforcement agencies are interested in Fajardo, and have been assisting Richmond RCMP in the investigation.

Plainclothes teams from the airport’s RCMP detachment have been conducting surveillance on these types of crimes at Vancouver airport since March.
