Vancouver police arrest person caught stealing same car multiple times

File / Global News

A team of Vancouver Police dogs helped to catch a person who had stolen the same car multiple times over the past few months.

Yesterday, police arrested three young people – two from Vancouver and one from Surrey – for attempting to steal a car. The day before, a woman who first had her car stolen in May phoned police to tell them she thought someone had been taking the car overnight and returning it in the morning.

Officers were watching the area last night when they saw a young man trying to steal the car. They were able to arrest him, but two other people fled. A dog team tracked them, and they were eventually found hiding on the deck of another person’s home.

The person police originally arrested had also been arrested in charged in May for stealing the exact same car.

Police have recommended charges of theft of auto over $5000, breach of probation and trespassing at night.
