Chilliwack RCMP say another prolific offenders off city streets.

Last Tuesday RCMP joined forces with Abbotsford police and the Integrated Municipal Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) to arrest 32-year-old Shaun Bolko

On Dec. 2, Bolko took police from Chilliwack into Langley, and was ultimately arrested in Abbotsford.  Bolko was the lone occupant of a Ford F-350 pick-up that had been stolen earlier that day from a Chilliwack address. Bolko also had a warrant for his arrest out of Coquitlam, B.C.

Bolko has been on IMPACT’s Top Ten Auto Theft list for the past two years. He was also arrested by the Chilliwack RCMP Property Crime Section in May of 2014 for allegedly possessing a stolen Ford F-350.  In this case, Bolko was found guilty of possession or stolen property, possession of firearm contrary to order, possession of break in instruments and breach of probation and was sentenced on June 5, receiving a jail sentence.

“This recent incident is a great example of the partnerships that the lower mainland property crime teams have,” said Cpl. Brock Rayworth the Non-Commission Officer in charge of the Chilliwack RCMP Property Crime Section. “Auto theft is a crime that occurs throughout the Lower Mainland and by working together we are able to effectively target and put these types of prolific offenders in jail,” he said.
