A typical scene in downtown Vancouver after the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup finals to the Boston Bruins. Many rioters have turned themselves in, but others are being identified by police through Facebook photos.

CBC News reports that a 17-year-old teenager from Burnaby, British Columbia, is now in RCMP custody after his own parents alleged that he was involved in the rioting which took place after the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup final on Wednesday.

The Mounties' Burnaby division has the teenager, whose name cannot be released to the public under Canada's Youth Criminal Justice Act, held in custody after photos were posted online of him breaking into a Louis Vuitton store near Howe and West Georgia St.


In the aftermath of the Vancouver riots, many sobered participants are turning themselves in, while others are still at large. Vancouver police and Mounties are using pictures posted on Facebook to help identify suspects.
