Burglary suspect caught in the act

Man caught after he broke into a Mission home and stole various personal items including jewelry.

Mission RCMP nabbed a burglar red-handed early Tuesday morning.

The lone man was caught right after he broke into a local residence — while the occupants were away — and stole various personal items from the home including jewellery.

“It would have been quite a surprise for this individual when the police swooped in and caught him still holding onto the stolen property,” said Staff Sergeant Rob Dixon. “This is an excellent example of intelligence-led policing and we couldn’t be more proud of our team and this dynamic arrest.”

Scott Milan of Mission appeared in Abbotsford Provincial Court, and has been charged with break and enter and intent to commit an indictable offence. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance.

Mission has had a recent rise in residential break-ins over the past several months and as a result the Mission RCMP have prioritized solving these crimes.

Mission RCMP in conjunction with other RCMP detachments in the Lower Mainland are combining resources to crack down on prolific offenders that are known to commit offences in multi-jurisdictions. This combined effort involves coordinating joint intelligence as to who is likely responsible, working together on shared investigative approaches and concentrating resources on significant crime trends.
