Two teenaged girls had been living at the house of Devic. The 14-year-olds had been living as home-stay students, but a source said the girls were removed.
The arrest happened after a Sept. 7 incident that saw the Surrey Creep Catchers livestream a confrontation with the suspect on facebook. RCMP responded to the incident, which happened at a mall on King George Highway when it began getting traction on social media.|
Police immediately launched an investigation, and within a few hours identified the suspect officer. The RCMP have also started an internal Code of Conduct investigation under the RCMP Act. Dario Devic was removed from duty and the RCMP intends to suspend him.
The video by the 'Creep Catchers' allegedly show the Mountie expecting to meet a 14 year-old girl.
