Coquitlam police seek suspects who stole from dozens of storage lockers

  Coquitlam police seek suspects who stole from dozens of storage lockers Coquitlam police are hoping the public can help identify two suspects who allegedly broke into and stole from dozens of storage lockers. According to police, the break-and-enter was first reported in December 2019. Investigators soon found that thousands of dollars of belongings had been taken from about 20 storage lockers at the same apartment complex located in the 3000-block Guildford Way. “It’s unusual to see this many storage lockers broken into at the same time, and as a result a lot of people have been victimized,” said Cpl. Michael McLaughlin with Coquitlam RCMP.

A B.C. doctor is stressing that new mothers do have a safe alternative if they believe they are unable to care for their child.

It comes after Coquitlam RCMP confirmed that someone abandoned an infant in a Port Coquitlam townhouse complex Saturday afternoon.

Dr. Geoffrey Cundiff was instrumental in spearheading the Angel's Cradle program at St. Paul's hospital a decade ago.

"B.C. and Canada have a very strong social safety net, (so) I think many of us think we don't need alternatives, but the fact that there are babies abandoned in the community are a testament to the fact that we are not meeting all of the needs of women whoa re in dire straits," Cundiff told Global News.

Cradle cap normally affects infants , but even toddlers have been known to get it. This condition is known to doctors as seborrheic dermatitis, and to the rest of us as cradle cap. As unsightly as the condition may appear, rest assured that cradle cap is both completely harmless and temporary.

The cradle provides an anonymous bassinet where new mothers can leave an infant that they do not believe they can care for. An automated system alerts nurses at the hospital, who will take custody of the child until the Ministry of Children and Family Development can find a suitable family to foster or adopt the baby.

The mother is permitted to leave with no questions asked.

"As long as they're healthy, there are no questions asked, no one stops them, they can leave," said Cundiff.

Cundiff said babies that are abandoned in the community often do not survive.

Last month, a newborn baby was found dead in a portable toilet at Main and Hastings streets in Vancouver.

Back in 2018, a newborn died after being found abandoned in a dumpster in Mission, B.C.

"We need to make people in the community aware (of the Angel's Cradle) so this doesn't happen in the future," said Cundiff.

Coqutilam RCMP continue to investigate the case of the infant abandoned on Saturday, but say the child is receiving medical care and is "doing well."
