A 30-year-old man suspected of committing several property offences throughout New Westminster was arrested on an outstanding warrant late last week, police say.

In a Monday morning news release, the New Westminster Police Department said the street crime unit found and arrested Tyler Bennett, a man who has a history of arrests and charges for similar offences.

A warrant had been issued for Bennett's arrest for failing to comply with a probation order and for possession of stolen property. 

“Our Street Crime Unit was able to use specialized investigative techniques during the course of this investigation,” said acting Chief Constable Dave Jansen. “The NWPD will continue to monitor priority offenders as we remain focused on reducing crime in our community.”

Bennett remains in custody, and his next appearance in court is scheduled for Aug. 23.
