Abbotsford, B.C., Police Make Easy Arrest After Suspect Helps To Capture Himself

  • Abbotsford, B.C., Police Make Easy Arrest After Suspect Helps To Capture Himself

ABBOTSFORD, B.C. — A 38-year-old man suspected of vehicle theft is under arrest in Abbotsford, B.C., but police say he actually captured himself.

 

A tweet from the department says officers responded to calls early Wednesday about a parked van that was "shaking violently."

 

Police quickly determined the van was stolen.

 
 

They opened the back doors of the vehicle to find the suspect had locked himself into the rear of the van and had no access to the front because a metal wall separated the cab from the back section of the vehicle.

 

The man was taken into more conventional custody and remains behind bars.

 

Abbotsford police say charges of possession of stolen property are being considered.
