MP Stewart helps catch graffiti vandal
Burnaby-Douglas NDP MP Kennedy Stewart added "crimefighter" to his resume Monday after he and his wife spotted a man tagging the side of a building in North Burnaby.
They called Burnaby RCMP who responded immediately, locating and arresting a suspect.
"I was only doing what I think any other citizen would do under those circumstances and I’m glad it worked out that the police were able to apprehend this man," said Stewart.
"I think it’s important for people to get involved and know when it’s appropriate to call the police. I would also like to say that I was very impressed with the quick police response and with the professionalism of the RCMP officers who attended."
Police have recommended charges against a 27-year-old man of mischief to property under $5,000.00 and two counts of breaching probation. His name was not released pending his being formally charged.
