Port Moody Resident Finds Bear Trapped Inside Their Vehicle (VIDEO)

bear breaking into a vehicle

This isn’t your typical theft. On Friday morning, Port Moody Police were notified about a bear breaking into a vehicle at a residence on Ioco Road.

“Upon arrival, members quickly determined the home owners had captured the want to be thief in the car and the suspect was actively trying to escape” reads a humorous police statement.

Police say the bear got into the car with its “bear hands” and then somehow trapped itself inside.

BC Conservation officers were quick to assist and let the bear out.

“The suspect was unharmed and free to embrace its new found freedom”.

In all seriousness, police want the public to use this incident as a reminder to keep your car doors locked, as well keep your garbage locked.

Just last month, surveillance footage shows another bear opening the car door of a vehicle parked on private property in Anmore.
