VPD arrest more suspects

Four additional people have been arrested after an ongoing investigation into a series of residential break-ins in Burnaby that led to arrests at the end of November.
 
Since Nov. 9, several residents reported to police that their homes were ransacked and personal items were  stolen.

The Vancouver Police Department says the suspects were circling neighbourhoods looking for potential targets.

The suspects would knock on doors, and when no one answered, they forced their way inside.
 
The VPD originally launched Project Lookout to investigate the break-ins, which resulted in the arrests of four suspects on Nov. 30. As a result of the investigation, additional suspects were also identified, which led to Project Lights Out.
 
“Once Project Lookout was underway, detectives realized there may have been more than one group of people involved,” said Const. Jason Doucette. “This should send a message to offenders that we will continue to investigate, even after arrests are made, and there is always a possibility of additional arrests and charges.”
 
Crown Counsel has approved two counts of break-and-enter against:

  • Corbin Neil Thomas, 28, of Richmond
  • Jerome Anthony Wood, 30, of Vancouver
  • Dwayne Nathan Dennis, 42, of Vancouver
  • Kim Adam Carter, 30, of Burnaby

Investigators are encouraging residents to report suspicious behaviour to 911 immediately. In addition, police are asking anyone who has been a victim of a break-in, and who has not yet made a police report, to contact their local police.
