Pitt Meadows B.C. – Ridge Meadows RCMP and loss prevention officers teamed up for a Shoplifting blitz due to a recent spike in retail thefts at local businesses.
In February 2023, Police noticed a trend with an increase in reports of retail thefts occurring in the area of Meadowtown Centre in Pitt Meadows. In direct response the Community Response Unit with the support of Frontline officers decided to increase enforcement and clampdown on these thefts.
Ridge Meadows RCMP in collaboration with loss prevention officers arrested 9 individuals and recovered over $1200 in stolen merchandise in two days during this blitz.
"These businesses are losing thousands of dollars due to these retail thefts," states Staff Sgt. Luca. "The people committing these thefts need to be held accountable for their actions."
Expect to see Blitz’s like this continuing throughout the year.
