Port Moody police arrest five suspects in alleged kidnapping

Five arrested for kidnapping

Police in Port Moody say five suspects are in custody after an alleged kidnapping in the city.

The Port Moody Police Department says it received multiple 911 calls after a man was reportedly pulled into a vehicle in the city's brewery district on Murray Street around 10 a.m. on Wednesday.

It says in a statement that the arrests were made Friday, but did not mention what charges the suspects may face or provide a potential motive.

Police say the victim, who is in his 40s, was rescued around Mission, B.C., adding "there was never an ongoing danger to the public."

The department says investigators from Port Moody and Vancouver executed multiple search warrants in the Lower Mainland Saturday morning.

It says officers do not believe any other suspects are outstanding but their investigation is ongoing.
