Sea to Sky RCMP have repeated warnings of a spike in vehicle thefts throughout the corridor.

According to a release on May 9, police reported officers in Squamish responded to reports of a stolen vehicle taken from a residential property in the Paradise Valley area.

The vehicle was located quickly – only 15 minutes after the report was made, and two suspects with the vehicle were arrested at the scene.

One of them was a frequent flyer, described as “well known to the Sea to Sky RCMP”, having been arrested four times for similar offences over the past few days.

“We know who these suspects are, and will continue to be vigilant in keeping our communities safe,” said Sea to Sky RCMP Sgt. Dallas Langley.

The two suspects are being held in custody awaiting a court hearing as of Thursday afternoon.

Sea to Sky RCMP re-iterated tips for helping prevent crime;

  • Always keep your vehicle locked and use an anti-theft device;
  • Do not keep spare keys in your vehicle;
  • Do not leave valuables and property in your vehicle, or in sight;
  • Wait for automatic gates to close behind you if you enter or leave a secure parking area;
  • Report suspicious persons or activity around vehicles to your local police. 

Sea to Sky RCMP have previously reported a raft of thefts up and down the corridor in recent weeks.
