The Independent Investigations Office has opened a new probe after a man died while in custody.
Coquitlam Mounties were called about a series of break in attempts in the 1500-block of Balmoral Drive; when they arrived, they found a severely injured and bleeding man with possible life threatening injuries.
A taser was deployed and a physical confrontation led to his arrest.
However, he soon went into medical distress and later died in hospital.
The IIO will be investigating if there’s a connection between his death and the actions of police.
