A Chilliwack man remains in custody after being arrested by police for allegedly breaking into a parked vehicle.

Keith Frederick Dan, 29, is scheduled to appear in court in early March to face criminal code charges of theft of vehicle contents, and possession of instruments suitable for the purpose of breaking into a motor vehicle.

The charges stem from an investigation initiated on March 1, at around 1 a.m. by RCMP officers patrolling in the area of Yale Road and Kipp Avenue. The members noticed a male peering into a parked vehicle.  After taking the man into custody general investigation support team and general duty officers quickly linked the suspect to items allegedly stolen from the parked vehicle.

“Police conduct pro-active patrols throughout the city and remain vigilant for criminals committing thefts from automobiles,” said Cpl. Mike Rail.

RCMP are reminding everyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious in nature to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, should if they wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
