Coquitlam RCMP has seized over 1500.00 cash and two replica guns during the execution of a search warrant that came from a fraud investigation.

Investigators linked a stolen credit card that had been taken from an unlocked vehicle and was used at several businesses in the Port Coquitlam area. Video surveillance from those businesses helped police identify a suspect who lived in the 3000 block of Raleigh Street, Port Coquitlam.

Coquitlam RCMP’s Youth Detail Section executed a search warrant at the home just after 8:00 a.m. on August 26, 2020, and a 37-year-old man was detained. After police searched the house for several hours, the man was released. He may face charges at a later date. Covid-19 has temporarily changed the types of investigations that are being done by the Youth Detail Section, says Constable Deanna Law. Youth is always our first priority, but this was a file where we were able to support our Front Line officers.

The evidence seized during the search included:

Police would like to remind everyone to lock your vehicles and keep all valuables with you. If you have concerns about criminal activity in your community, or see a crime in progress, please call the non-emergency number at 604-945-1550.
