Emmett Ralph Brady was arrested Aug. 31 in South Surrey after tips to police from the public.

Multiple tips end in suspect arrest

Public help police after assistance sought last week

A tip from the public led police to arrest a man wanted in connection with alleged crimes in White Rock and involving Transit police.

Const. Janelle Shoihet said Surrey RCMP Const. Bonnie Sauve caught up with the 20-year-old last Tuesday after a brief foot pursuit in the area of 24 Avenue and 153 Street.

Police the previous week had asked for the public’s assistance in locating Emmett Ralph Brady.

They were alerted just before noon Aug. 31, after a man matching Brady’s description was spotted near 160 Street and 18 Avenue. Officers from Surrey and White Rock were searching the area when a second tip pointed police towards 24 Avenue and 153 Street.

Spotted leaving a local business, Brady was arrested following a short foot pursuit.

Brady appeared in Surrey Provincial Court Thursday, charged with break-and-enter, possession of stolen property, theft, obstruction and assaulting a police officer.

He’s due back in court Sept. 21.
