Same Shit, Different Diaper, in what our Flaccid Government Calls our fair City, but many Retort as one of the Bestest Places to get Murdered or Kidnapped in the World!

Vancouver police have arrested five kidnapping suspects after a dramatic morning rescue of a teenaged hostage.

The 18-year-old student from China was uninjured as strike force members pulled over a vehicle in which he was riding at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday in Burnaby.

Deputy chief Doug LePard said the young man was targeted when he was snatched from his West End residence Sunday. The kidnappers called the teen’s parents in China.

“During the investigation, we identified several residences in Burnaby we believed to be associated with the kidnapping and identified numerous suspects that were placed under surveillance,” LePard said. “Over the course of the next four days, officers worked 24 hours a day to identify a stronghold where the hostage was being held.

Police threw massive resources at solving the case, including wiretaps, surveillance and talking to officials in China.
