A 34-year-old Langley man was nabbed as a suspect soon after the break-in of a Chilliwack business early Sunday morning.

A 34-year-old Langley man was nabbed as a suspect soon after the break-in of a Chilliwack business early Sunday morning.

Police said a security guard at the business located in the 8000-block Evans Road saw a hole in a chain link fence just after midnight, and was writing up a report when he saw a male leaving the compound.

The guard attempted to stop the suspect, but the intruder was able to make it to his vehicle and flee the scene.

The guard called police, and a member of the Fraser Valley Traffic Services was in the area and intercepted the suspect vehicle about 400 meters from the scene.

The suspect was taken into custody and charged with break-and-enter. The suspect unidentified by police was released on a promise to appear later in court.

“This is a good example of the coordinated effort that goes into catching property thieves,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said.

“The RCMP work hard to try and reduce the amount of property crime in the area, and it is a priority to us,” she said.
