Hope man arrested for thefts from vehicle

He was arrested on Sunday and faces charges of theft under $5,000 and mischief under $5,000

A 48-year-old Hope man has been arrested in connection to thefts from parked vehicles.

Hope RCMP received a complaint on Sunday of a man allegedly breaking windows in the 900 block of Water Ave.

Upon arrival, officers saw the man but he quickly faded from view. Police secured a perimeter and successfully contained the area with assistance from Fraser Valley Traffic Services. A search of the area led to the man being found hiding under a vehicle.

He was arrested for theft under $5,000 and mischief under $5,000. The man was later released from police custody with a court date in February 2015

Hope RCMP credits an observant neighbour who took the time to immediately contact police, which assisted in making the arrest that evening.

Police encourage residents to report any suspicious behaviour, activity or occurrences. To make a report, call Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1- 800-222-8477 (TIPS) to remain anonymous.
