Police have found and seized the flat red-coloured van that is believed to be involved in the death of a Burnaby businessman, RCMP said Thursday.

Alberto Morgadinho, 60, was killed outside his business in the 7500 block of Meadow Avenue on July 2. The man reportedly died after trying to stop the van after a robbery at his contracting business.

The older-style Econoline van was discovered earlier in the week at a Surrey residence, Mounties said. Its colour had been altered.
