Motorcycle Thief With 50 Year Driving Prohibition Arrested
File # 10-08 2010-04-28 11:54 PDT
It seems that some people never learn.
Yesterday afternoon the Integrated Municipal Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) located a stolen 2006 Kawasaki motorcycle being driven in the Langley area and commenced surveillance. The suspect driver was observed to be driving erratically by speeding excessively, pulling U-turns and failing to stop for red lights and stop signs.
Surveillance continued through Langley, Surrey and over the Golden Ears Bridge into Pitt Meadows where the suspect was safely arrested by IMPACT in the 12000 block of 193rd St.
What is of particular concern is the driving history of the 32 year old man of no fixed address. This accused has never possessed a British Columbia driver’s licence and has amassed no fewer than 7 Criminal Code convictions for Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle and 6 Criminal Code convictions for Driving While Suspended. In December of 2005 the accused was given a 50 year driving prohibition which means that he would be 77 years old when the prohibition expires.
Recommended charges against the accused include Possession of Stolen Property Under $5000, Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle and 2 counts of Driving While Suspended. Needless to say, IMPACT has requested the courts to remand the accused in custody.
