A Surrey man arrested in Burnaby by New Westminster police early Wednesday morning faces two charges.

New Westminster police say an NWPD officer spotted a black, 1998 Volkswagen Jetta during a patrol of a problematic residence in the 7700 block of Sixth Street in Burnaby during a patrol . It had been reported stolen from New West earlier in the evening.

With help from additional officers, the lone occupant of the vehicle was taken into custody without incident.

"Criminals don't abide by police boundaries so we are actively engaged with the Burnaby RCMP in focusing on this residence and its occupants whome we believe are committing crime in both Burnaby and New Westminster," said New Westminster Staff-Sgt. Paul Hyland.

Wesley Dean Rideout, 25, of Surrey appeared in New Westminster court later Wednesday charged with theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen property under $5,000. He was held in custody pending his next appearance Aug. 13.
