A 15-year-old Chilliwack boy was arrested Tuesday after he was found hiding inside the garage of a home police believe he had broken into earlier.

“This young offender is known to us,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said. “Charges and a curfew have been recommended to Crown counsel for this incident.”

The boy was held in custody for a possible court hearing. If the Crown decides to lay criminal charges, instead of referring the case to restorative justice, the youth’s past record will be taken into consideration by the judge.

Police said they got a call from a woman in the 9600-block Broadway Street about someone breaking into her garage at about 8 p.m.

When police arrived, the woman told them she believed the suspect was still inside the garage.

RCMP officers found the 15-year-old “hiding inside the garage,” Hollingsworth said.

“The suspect had the victim’s house key in his possession at the time of arrest,” she said. “The victim stated that her house key was inside her house. The boy would have had to enter her home (while she was there) to get the key.”


The suspect’s name cannot be published because of his age.
