6 Richmond RCMP investigations result in one suspect pleading guilty to seven charges

Darpan News Desk Richmond RCMP, 08 Aug, 2022 11:26 AM
  • 6 Richmond RCMP investigations result in one suspect pleading guilty to seven charges

Richmond RCMP Property Crime Unit and Frontline officers investigated six files in which the same man was alleged to have committed the offences.

The offences included a commercial break and enter in the 11000 block of Bridgeport Rd on January 30, 2022 and a commercial break and enter to a business in the 8000 block of Granville Ave on February 9, 2022.

When the break and enter call first comes it’s typically our frontline officers that attend. This first attendance is extremely important as it begins the evidence collection process, says Corporal Ray Basi, NCO in-charge of Richmond RCMP Property Crime Unit, Officers from our Property Crime Unit then review and provide investigative support to each of these investigations. In doing so, they often recognize the serial nature of the break and enters, which can result in the identification of the offender. In this case it’s resulted in a known offender pleading guilty to seven charges which span six separate investigations.

Darren Clifford Belcourt pled guilty to seven charges and was sentenced to 180 days in jail.

Wind shifts have fire-threatened villages on edge

Winds in the area are known to change constantly and their unpredictability has firefighters and emergency officials preparing for the worst, said Tim Roberts, the area's elected regional director. Much of wildfire was concentrated in steep, mountainous terrain on Friday, and was less threatening to Olalla's estimated 400 properties, but that could change, Roberts said.
