A Chilliwack man who pled guilty after being caught in a bait car just four months ago was back before a judge this week.

This time 24-year-old Lough Plumridge was pleading guilty to possession of stolen property, possessing breaking and entering tools, and breach of conditions.

Plumridge had been arrested Nov. 21 after being caught with a Honda Prelude that had been stolen in Chilliwack.

“We are actively targeting offenders who steal vehicles,” said Cpl. Brock Rayworth, who heads the Chilliwack RCMP’s Property Crime Section. “If offenders like this continue to steal vehicles once released from jail, we will continue to target them.”

Chilliwack RCMP Property Crime Unit works in the Upper Fraser Valley to target auto theft and other active property crime offenders, in the area.  The Property Crime Unit also works with other partnering agencies, such as the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) in an effort to reduce property crime within the Lower Mainland.
