ERT descends on Maple Ridge home as part of robbery investigation
A large police presence at a Maple Ridge home that included several Emergency Response Team (ERT) vehicles on Friday was part of a robbery investigation, RCMP said.
Langley RCMP confirmed that the incident involved officers executing a search warrant related to an investigation from its jurisdiction.
The investigation saw officers surround a home on Bosonworth Avenue near Kanaka Creek Regional Park, and set up a roadblock into the area.
Neighbours told Global News that undercover police officers have been in the neighbourhood for several days.
One neighbour said they heard a loud bang Friday morning.
“One loud, loud, loud shot. It was scary, very scary,” the neighbour said. “Sometimes you hear it and its like, ‘Is that a firecracker?’ or whatever, but it was a huge, huge, huge bang.”
Langley RCMP said there was no one in the home, and that officers would be clearing the scene by Friday evening.
