Vancouver police believe they've put an end to this year's dramatic spike in baby formula thefts across the Lower Mainland. Police say a 46-year-old man has been arrested for orchestrating a so-called predatory fencing operation, where he would pay drug-addicted people to steal baby formula from retail chains around the region. Detective Constable Doug Fell says those stolen goods would then be shipped to China and sold for up to three times the Canadian retail rate. (Police believe the accused, who is 46 years old, is responsible for nearly three quarters of the baby-formula thefts in Metro Vancouver over the past year. Fell says charges are being considered for two other people linked to the fencing ring.)
