The couple decided to contact police about their son after seeing photos of the looting at the Louis Vuitton store on the corner of Howe Street and West Georgia Street that were posted on the internet, RCMP said.

Police allege the teen was also linked to the destruction of a Vancouver police vehicle, which was flipped upside down during the rioting.

The youth, who cannot be named because of his age, is set to appear in court in August to answer to charges of break enter and theft, and mischief to property over $5,000.

People turn themselves in

Meanwhile, police in Vancouver continue to make arrests following the riot on Wednesday after the Stanley Cup final game at Rogers Arena.

Vancouver Police Department Chief Jim Chu said six people have turned themselves in and police are recommending charges ranging from arson to unlawful assembly.

Chu said 1,800 tips have come into VPD and 30 officers are assigned to the investigation, with more expected to be added.

On Thursday, police said that 88 people had been charged with breach of peace, eight were charged with public intoxication and eight were charged with criminal offences, including theft, mischief, assault with a weapon and break and enter.

People with pictures or video or other evidence that may identify rioters are being asked to contact police.

The riot broke out on Wednesday evening after the Canucks lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final to the Boston Bruins.
