Ryan is accused of a break in and car theft in South Surrey at about 9:45 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 23rd, followed by a theft of licence plates, a number of collisions across Surrey and into Langley, and a final crash in Port Kells, following which he was arrested by a large number of officers.

At one point, a Langley resident filmed a man running around a local field nude save for a pair of shoes. The man eventually got in a car drove off in a hurry.

The suspect was reportedly naked when he was eventually arrested.

This is not the first time Ryan has been before the courts. The 26-year-old resident of Kelowna appears to have a criminal record.

In 2017, court records show that Ryan was found guilty of multiple charges in Osoyoos, including resisting or obstructing a peace officer, two counts of theft under $5,000 and three of possession of stolen property.

He was back in court in Kelowna in 2018, and that case wrapped up Jan. 16 of this year, when he was found guilty of two counts of possession of stolen property and a breach of recognizance.
