RCMP recover stolen vehicles after man spots his truck on the road in Langford

Two suspects arrested, will face charges

West Shore RCMP recovered two stolen vehicles after one of the owners called in a tip after he spotted his pick-up truck being driven along Sooke Road in Langford.

On April 27, the truck owner followed a man to Isabelle Avenue and Happy Valley Road where he parked. The man’s vehicle was stolen in Saanich back in March. Investigators soon arrived on the scene and watched as a woman pulled up next to the truck with another stolen vehicle.

“The Crime Reduction Unit swooped in and arrested both suspects for possession of stolen property,” said Cpl. Fred Ritchie, West Shore RCMP crime reduction unit. “The two stolen vehicles were recovered by police and the two suspects will be facing charges.”

As suspects are often unpredictable, officers thanked the man for not approaching the vehicle and instead calling police immediately.
