Your source for local news, sports, opinion and entertainment: ’Staches back in fashion Crash leads to charges Mismatched licence plates attract police John Kurucz Jeremy Deutsch Eagle-eyed Coquitlam Mounties are being credited for catching a suspected car thief. Two members of the detachment’s prolific target team (PTT) were patrolling the 3600 block of Oxford Street in PoCo on Nov. 6 when they came across a suspicious vehicle. The blue Volkswagen Passat had mismatched licence plates. When police tried to pull over the driver, the car sped off. The cruiser didn’t pursue, police say, but officers kept an eye on the car from a distance. A short time later, the driver crashed into another car near the intersection of Pinetree Way and Lougheed Highway. The suspect ran off, but was quickly arrested without incident. The crash was minor in nature. Andrew Marlow, 31, of Surrey is facing 17 charges, including nine for failing to comply, three for possession of stolen property, two for possession of a weapon, and single charges for possession of break-in instruments, flight from police and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance on Nov. 30. The RCMP’s PTT is a team of investigators that focuses on three areas of crime reduction: prolific offenders, crime hot spots and crime causation. y.

Dean Robson, all based out of the Mariner fire hall. This photo was shot on Nov. 8, just a week into their facial-hair endeavours. The lip tickler and the soup strainer are in vogue this month, as organizations and individuals align themselves with Movember fundraising efforts. Each November, thousands of men grow mustaches to raise awareness of, and funds for, men’s health initiatives, especially prostate cancer and mental health. Coquitlam firefighters are in the process of grooming their upper lip plumage, and will donate their pledges to the Coquitlam Firefighters Charitable Society. Coquitlam Mounties are also getting in on the Movember movement. Twenty-plus officers from the local detachment are growing their best moustaches to raise money for cancer research. Last year, the group raised more than $13,000 and finished second nationally among all police teams for fundraising. Go to http://ca.movember. com/team/531753 to donate or see interesting pictures of their Mo’s. Douglas College players who competed last weekend for the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association’s (CCAA) national soccer championships are also growing their facial hair in partnership with the Movember Canada movement. “We really wanted to build in a community-involvement aspect to the championship,” Kyle Baillie, director of the centre for campus life and athletics at Douglas College, said in a press release. “We haven’t seen a partnership like this before in the CCAA, so we thought it was fun, relevant and something the players could get behind.” Another Movember event is slated for later this month. The second-annual Crumb Savers Movember Party will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 24 at the Treehouse Neighbourhood Pub in PoCo. The party will include costumes, moustache-grooming tips and prizes for Best Mo in Character, Miss Movember and the 2012 Man of Movember.
