Three suspects—one from North Vancouver—were arrested on Sunday, after they were located trying to flee from a residential break and enter.
On February 14, at 2 am West Vancouver Police received a report of an in-progress break and enter to a home in the 2500 block of Westhill Dr.
The homeowner, who was calling from overseas, claimed to have live CCTV footage of suspects inside her home.
Officers quickly set up containment in the area and requested assistance from an RCMP K9 unit.
The property was searched and it was determined that the home was unoccupied and the suspects had since fled.
An officer who was holding containment noted a vehicle attempting to leave the area.
A vehicle stop was conducted and the three occupants were detained.
Moments later, all three occupants were arrested after officers located evidence linking them to the crime scene.
A resident of North Vancouver, 24-year-old Nicholas Lee, was charged for break and enter a dwelling with intent.
Kevin Strome, a 30-year-old resident of Vancouver and 57-year-old, Tamera Dion Buffalo of Vancouver were also charged in the crime.
All three were brought before a judge on February 14, and later released pending their next court appearance on March 3 in North Vancouver Provincial Court.
