Suspect deliberately damaged over 400 vehicles at the Journey Chrysler Jeep Dodge and Ram dealership in Port Coquitlam resulting in over $500,000 in damage

Coquitlam, BC – Coquitlam RCMP is appealing for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect of a mischief series at the Journey Chrysler Jeep Dodge and Ram dealership located at 1300 Dominion Avenue and the Journey Approved dealership located at 1881 Lougheed Highway in Port Coquitlam.

Between January and April 2023, Police received three separate reports of mass car keying incidents at the Journey Chrysler car dealership in Port Coquitlam. Initial estimates indicate that close to 400 vehicles were damaged, including the exterior of one of the businesses resulting in over $500,000 in damage.

Video surveillance captured the lone suspect systematically damaging the vehicles within the car dealership lot.


The suspect can be described as:

Caucasian female

40-50 years old

Shoulder-length blonde hair

Heavy build

The suspect can be described as wearing glasses, gloves, toque, and a surgical mask.

“It is clear in the videos that the suspect was deliberately scratching the vehicles one-by-one,” said Corporal Alexa Hodgins of the Coquitlam RCMP. “Our investigators are continuing to follow up on any investigational leads, but are requesting the assistance from the public in identifying the suspect.”

The suspect is believed to be driving a 2008-2013 Ford Escape.
