Abbotsford/Coquitlam/Valemount – A Valemount, BC man is in custody for Parole violation and parental abduction due to the quick thinking of an off-duty AbbyPD Officer .
On Tuesday afternoon, the 51 year old man left his residence with his 8 year old son in a silver minivan. At 4 AM Wednesday morning, as the AbbyPD officer headed home after shift, she recognized the minivan’s license plate from an earlier briefing. She quickly contacted the local police agency to report the sighting and was able to observe the vehicle until police arrived.
Coquitlam RCMP officers were able to stop the minivan and arrest two occupants without incident.
The child was recovered unharmed.
