Two Richmond residents were among four people charged Wednesday in connection with the Stanley Cup riots in Downtown Vancouver last June.

The Crown has approved charges of participating in a riot and mischief over $5,000 against Jamil Sunderji, 25.

Another Richmond resident, a 17 year old whose name cannot be published under conditions of the Youth Justice Act, has also been charged with rioting and mischief.

Also charged was a 17-year-old North Vancouver resident, a young offender who is facing two counts of mischief over $5,000 and rioting, and Surrey's James Ca Ha, 21, who is charged with participating in a riot and breaking and entering.

This brings to 150 the number of suspects police are recommending charges against, for a total of 348 charges. The Integrated Riot Investigation Team is anticipating more charges in the future.

Other Richmond residents charged in the riot are Sophie LaBoissonniere, Camille Cacnio and Roneil Kumar.
