One of Richmond RCMP’s most-wanted suspects has been apprehended.
Erica Esquieres is facing over 26 charges for fraud and related offences throughout British Columbia, including mail theft, forgery, and credit card fraud. Of those charges, 15 were from Richmond.
She has been wanted by police since she was released from custody July 2019.
After receiving several investigative tips, Richmond RCMP officers traveled to Oliver, B.C., where she was located and arrested in the 7000 block of Tuc-el-Nuit Drive on January 3.
She is being held in Oliver until she will be transferred to Richmond tomorrow (January 10).
“Staying true to form, even at the end, Esquieres attempted to deceive our officers to avoid capture,” Sgt. Gene Hsieh stated in a Richmond RCMP news release. “Fortunately, each and every officer on the arrest team, was quite familiar with Esquieres and her modus operandi.”
