Richmond RCMP last week arrested a suspect allegedly trying to steal a van.

Just before noon Thursday (Oct. 22), police responded to a report of a theft of a gardener’s vehicle in the 8000 block of Spires Gate. When they arrived, police found the vehicle in a deep ditch with significant damage to its front end. The suspect driver was still on scene when police arrived. 

The 48 year-old Vancouver resident was arrested and taken to hospital, where he received treatment for undisclosed injuries. He has since been released from custody, but charges have not yet been laid. The investigation remains active and ongoing.

Police encourage anyone with information or evidence about a potential investigation to contact them.
