On April 21 and 22, 2022, Burnaby RCMP’s Community Response Team and Bike Section conducted this year’s first joint Boost & Bust initiative at Metrotown and Station Square.

The two-day operation resulted in 37 arrests, including seven people with outstanding warrants and four others that were breaching court-imposed conditions. Police also recovered approximately $5,000 worth of merchandise.

This type of crime affects everyone and is a regional issue, as many of the offenders were not residents of Burnaby.

With assistance from Metrotown Security, Station Square Security and Store Loss Prevention Officers, the operation was a success, said Corporal Mike Kalanj with the Burnaby RCMP. We’d also like to thank Transit Police for their great support.

The Community Response Team will continue to work with local businesses to prevent and deter thefts and would like criminals to know the Burnaby RCMP is continuing patrols in the Metrotown area.

While this latest Boost and Bust initiative has come to an end, our officers will continue to keep a visible presence in the Metrotown area, Kalanj added.
