Ridge Meadows RCMP: Can you identify suspects in parcel and auto thefts?

RIDGE Meadows RCMP are looking to identify two suspects alleged to be involved in local parcel thefts and auto thefts.

On Monday, March 9, at around 12:30 p.m., police received a report that a man alleged to be a suspect in the theft of a green Toyota Rav4 SUV was observed in the area of the 22700-block of Lougheed Highway. When police arrived, the suspect fled and a foot chase ensued. However, the suspect managed to evade police. Police identified the man as the same suspect allegedly involved in a parcel theft from the doorstep of a local home earlier in the month.

Moments later, police received a report that a man was washing his silver Chevrolet Silverado truck in the same area and had left his keys in the ignition when a man, matching the earlier suspect’s description, stole the truck. Police responded and located the truck, attempting to stop the vehicle, but the suspect drove the truck in a dangerous manner and police discontinued the chase. The abandoned Silverado was located a short time later in the area of 222nd Street and Selkirk.

Female suspect

Police are releasing images of the suspect and a woman, who is allegedly an associate of the suspect, in order to further the investigation.

The man is described as white, 5’9 to 5’11 in height, with a slim build, dark brown curly or wavy hair and goatee facial hair and wearing an olive green long coat.

A shoe belonging to the male suspect was recovered and is described as: Nike air max, grey and orange color, left shoe men’s size US 11.

The woman is described as white with brown hair, wearing a black or dark coloured coat with a fur hood.
