One of BC’s most prolific truck thieves nabbed in Chilliwack

A man with a taste for Ford pickup trucks faces two charges after being picked up by Chilliwack RCMP.

A prolific auto thief is back in police custody, arrested for a second time this month.

Thirty-two year old Chilliwack resident Shaun Darryl Bolko was picked up last Saturday after the RCMP’s Crime Reduction Unit found a stolen Ford F-350 pickup truck.

It was taken from the 9000 block of Birch Street and recovered at the corner of Yale Road and Menzies Street.

Bolko, who’s been identified in the RCMP’s prolific offender program, recently made the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team’s list of British Columbia’s top 10 auto crime offenders. In late March he was picked up in Abbotsford after they found him near a stolen Ford F250 pickup truck.

He now faces charges of possession of stolen property and breach of probation. Bolko will stay in custody until May 5.

April was auto crime month in British Columbia.

“A small percentage of people commit the vast majority of the property crime in the Upper Fraser Valley,” said Cpl. Brock Rayworth of the Chilliwack RCMP’s property crime section. “If they choose to continue this lifestyle they will be targeted and end up in jail.”
