Police Briefs: Stolen truck leads to arrest in Vancouver; camera equipment stolen



A New Westminster man is facing charges after he allegedly pulled a knife at a village restaurant, police said.

At about 3:05 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13, police responded to a report of a male that had gotten into a fight, pulled a knife and was "pointing it at people in a restaurant at Marketplace," according to a release.

Officers attended and arrested the suspect and took him into custody. Police said the knife was located nearby.

"Whistler RCMP remains committed to providing a safe community for residents and visitors alike," police said in a release. "Violence, particularly when accompanied by weapons, will not be tolerated."

The 22-year-old suspect was subsequently released from custody to appear in North Vancouver court at a later date.

Stolen truck leads to 'well-known' offender in Vancouver, police say

Whistler police said a truck stolen from Function Junction last week eventually led investigators to a "well known" property offender in Vancouver, who now faces charges.

On Friday, Oct. 12, Whistler RCMP received a report of a theft of a grey 2001 Toyota Tundra from a secure parking lot. In a release, police said the chain enclosing the parking area had been cut.

Then, at about 2:10 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 15, Vancouver police arrested a man driving the stolen truck on Abbott Street. The suspect, a 49-year-old male of no fixed address, is previously known to Whistler RCMP, police said.

The man is scheduled to appear at Vancouver court at a later date.
