Two men face numerous charges after vehicle thefts in Moncton


RCMP say two Moncton men are facing numerous charges in connection with the theft of an SUV and ATV in Moncton earlier this month.

Officers responded in the early afternoon of June 11 to a call of a theft of a trailer that contained an ATV from a residence on Chandler Crescent.

Police say they located a stolen SUV pulling a trailer shortly afterward but the suspects tried to evade police and hit an unmarked police vehicle before fleeing.

RCMP say they received a tip about an SUV driving onto a walking trail on Palisade Street and with the help of the Police Dog Services, located two men and placed them under arrest.

30-year-old Richard William Glibbery of Moncton is facing the following charges:
- theft over $5,000
- possession of stolen property over $5,000
- dangerous driving
- failure to remain at the scene of a motor vehicle collision
- resisting arrest
- flight from police
- breach of an undertaking

Police say he has been remanded into custody pending his next court appearance on July 18.

36-year-old Brian Mark Clarke of Moncton has been charged with:
- theft over $5,000
- possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000
- failure to comply with a probation order

RCMP say he has been remanded into custody and will appear in court on Wednesday.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
