Police serve warrants seeking Vancouver media outlets' riot images
Police will serve Vancouver media outlets with warrants today (September 28) in order to obtain their footage of the Stanley Cup riot.
The Integrated Riot Investigation Team, led by the Vancouver Police Department, announced this morning that the Vancouver Sun, Province, Globe and Mail, Global TV, CTV, and CBC are among the outlets that will be subject to the warrants.
"This is an important step in the investigation to ensure all images are collected and rioters held accountable," team commander Les Yeo said in a news release.
Yeo also said that police expect to recommend 40 riot-related charges to the Crown by October 31.
