Home invasion suspects in court

Two men accused in a September home invasion of an elderly couple made some brief appearances in court on Thursday (Jan. 9).

Brodey Muncey and Shawne Isinger are both charged with break and enter and unlawful confinement in connection with the home invasion.

Muncey remains behind bars since his arrest a day after the home invasion and appeared via video conference from jail.

Isinger was released from jail shortly after his arrest.

Police allege that Muncey and his partner Isinger, 36, both of Langley, broke into the partially open sliding door of a second floor apartment occupied by a  78-year-old woman and a 79-year-old man.

They robbed the couple and fled. The victims called 911 and within minutes police and a police dog were there. The forensic unit identified the two suspects and Isinger was arrested a short time later by the RCMP street enforcement unit.

Muncey was arrested the following day after police received a tip on his whereabouts from a member of the public.

After a dramatic standoff, the Emergency Response Team was able to arrest him in Langley City apartment building in the 5300 block of 206 Street, where he was believed to be living.

At the time of his arrest, Muncey was also found to be the subject of outstanding arrest warrants for robbery and use of an imitation firearm.
