An investigation into a brazen break-and-enter in Horseshoe Bay in early morning hours of April 5 has resulted in the arrest of a second suspect.
On April 5, at 1:56 am, West Vancouver Police received multiple reports of a pickup truck driving into a building in the 6600 block of Royal Ave in an attempt to steal items inside.
Three suspects were seen fleeing the area on foot, empty-handed, after the truck became stuck.
Following assistance from LMD Police Dog Services, one of the suspects was located nearby and taken into custody.
This suspect was identified as 38-year-old Richmond resident, Abray Isaac.
The other two suspects fled the scene and were not located.
Isaac is facing the following criminal charges: Break and Enter, Dangerous Operation of a Conveyance, Theft Over $5000, and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000.
Since the incident, Detectives from WVPD’s Major Investigations Team were able to identify one of the outstanding suspects as 34-year-old Richmond resident, Sean Hudson.
On April 28, members of WVPD’s Target Team took Hudson into custody in Richmond.
“This was a brazen criminal act that left the Horseshoe Bay community on edge,” says Cst. Kevin Goodmurphy.
“We are pleased that a second suspect has been identified and charged, and we are making attempts to identify the third suspect.”
Hudson is facing the following criminal charges: Break and Enter, and Possession of Break-In Instruments.
The investigation is still ongoing.
