North Vancouver RCMP are investigating an unusual trend where stolen Subarus from that community are ending up on Burnaby's Edmonds neighbourhood.

Since January, 18 Subaru vehicles (late 1990s to early 2000s models) have been stolen throughout the city and district of North Vancouver.

In each case, the stolen vehicle has been recovered within a six-block radius in the Kingsway-Edmonds area.

“These vehicle thefts are very concerning to the police. Whoever is responsible has developed a pattern and is showing no regards for the law or public safety,” said North Vancouver RCMP Cpl. Richard De Jong in a press release.

Police are seeking the public's help in identifying the suspect or suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call North Vancouver RCMP Const. Paul Bentham at 604-969-7510, quoting file # 2011-32884. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) where rewards of up to $2,000 are given for tips that lead to the arrest of suspects.
