Seventy Riot Suspects Have Turned Themselves In: New Photos Released Today

Since June 15th, 70 suspected rioters have turned themselves in to police and the number is increasing daily. We expect this number to steadily grow with the newly added photos to the website riot2011.vpd.ca.

“We are seeing more and more people making the decision to turn themselves in,” said Inspector Les Yeo of the Integrated Riot Investigation Team. “Every Wednesday, we will add new photos for identification.”

IRIT Statistics

The total number of suspects featured on the website that have either turned themselves in, are under investigation, or have been arrested, has increased from 28 to 44 since last week.

Tips received through the website are up to 425.
