Three Abby rioters turn themselves in

Three Abbotsford residents are among the 79 Stanley Cup rioters who have turned themselves in to police, according to the latest stats from the Vancouver Police Department (VPD).

The VPD said 61 people have turned themselves in, have been arrested or are under investigation after 101 pictures of suspected rioters were posted on the VPD website.

Several had turned themselves in before the images were released of the June 15 riot.

Of the 79, 65 are male. The majority are from Surrey (20) and Vancouver (17), but they are also from Langley, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Delta, North Vancouver, New Westminster and out of province.

The VPD has said it expects to lay charges against 40 of the individuals by the end of this month. The VPD riot website is located at riot2011.vpd.ca
