A weekend sweep of convicted criminals on parole or under house arrest in Langley found that roughly one in four wasn’t home when they were supposed to be.

Of 35 people living under court-imposed curfews, eight were not home when members of the Langley Crime Reduction Unit came calling on the weekend of April 19, said RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks in a written statement released Wednesday.

Marks said the breaches will be reported to their probation officers “for their consideration of Criminal Code Breach charges.”

The curfew checks are conducted roughly every three months.
