After a short standoff, the Emergency Response Team was able to arrest a man on Saturday morning in Langley City. He was one of two suspects in a home invasion and robbery of an elderly Langley couple.
Acting on a tip from a member of the public, Langley RCMP went to an apartment building in the 5300 block of 206 Street, where Brody Muncey was believed to be living, on Saturday morning. On Friday, Langley RCMP put out a public notice announcing an arrest warrant had been issued for Muncey. He was the second suspect identified in a Sept. 9 home invasion and robbery of an elderly Langley couple.
Out of an abundance of caution, some residents of neighbouring units were temporarily moved outside. A short standoff ensued, but after a few minutes Muncey was arrested without further incident.
Police allege that Muncey and his partner Shawne Isinger, 36, also of Langley, broke into the partially open sliding door of a second floor apartment occupied by a 78-year-old woman and 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 also found to be the subject of outstanding arrest warrants for robbery and use of an imitation firearm. Both suspects remain behind bars.
