Two more Chilliwack men charged in home invasion

Two more Chilliwack men have been charged for taking part in a brutal home invasion in east Chilliwack last April.

And Chilliwack RCMP investigators believe there may be more involved in the April 16 incident in which one occupant of the home was sent to hospital.

Police said details of the case cannot be released because of a court-ordered publication ban.

Newly-charged are Marc Cadieux, 41, and Steve Tkachuk, 44, both from Chilliwack. They are charged with break and enter with the intent to commit an indictable offense, robbery, assault causing bodily harm and disguising their faces with the intent to commit an offence.

Both men remain in custody, and have separate court dates this week, Cadieux on Nov. 5 and Tkachuk on Nov. 6

Charged earlier, David Ganaway 29, also from Chilliwack, returns to court Nov. 20 to fix a date for trial.

"The persistent efforts of the Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crime Unit have resulted in charges against the three men," RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said in a news release.

She said investigators believe there were other people involved in this crime, and are continuing to investigate "until all possible leads have been explored and exhausted."

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
