Surrey RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in an alleged break and enter in the South Surrey area.
On October 5, Surrey RCMP received a report of thefts from two vehicles and a subsequent break and enter into a garage in the 16300-block of 12th Avenue. A man was caught on CCTV footage entering the two vehicles parked on the property and then the garage. The suspect accessed the garage by using the garage door opener, which had been found in one of the vehicles on the property. Several items were stolen including computer equipment.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 18-23 years old, 5’8” tall, 140lbs, with short dark hair, a pointy nose, and possibly having a black eye on his left side.
“While we are seeking the identity of this suspect, we also want to remind residents to not keep garage door openers in their vehicles as they are essentially keys to your home,” says Constable Richard Wright. “Ensuring that your garage door openers stay with you is one way to keep your home and family safe.”
Anyone with information on the identity of either of this suspect, or who has further information about this incident is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, if you wish to make an anonymous report, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
