After a wave of break-and-enters have been taking place in Surrey, RCMP have arrested two prolific offenders.
On October 17, RCMP warned citizens about an increase in break-and-enters in Surrey, usually occurring overnight, over the past few months.
On October 23, Surrey RCMP used a search warrant at a residence in the 13100 block of 24th Avenue. Officers located a number of items associated with break-and-enters and thefts that took place in the South Surrey area.
As a result, two men from Surrey—41-year-old Michael Reeves and 33-year-old Bradley Richards—have been charged with fraud offences connected to credit cards that were stolen during break-and-enters.
The ongoing investigation includes some further suspects being identified and other charges are being considered.
Anyone with information regarding the break and enter or fraud offences is asked to call Surrey RCMP or, to make an anonymous report, Crime Stoppers.
Previously, Surrey RCMP arrested 39-year-old David Lawson on September 11, who has been charged with 11 counts of breaking and entering, fraud, breaching probation, and more.
A warrant was issued on October 24 for the arrest of his associate, Tessa-Lee Wahpooseywan, who was involved in the break-and-enters. Surrey RCMP stated in a news release today (November 1) that Wahpooseywan, who is accused in two counts of breaking and entering to commit an indictable offence, turned herself in on October 30.
Meanwhile on October 16, the New Westminster Police Department announced that, working with Surrey RCMP, 54-year-old Dale Rimmer was arrested after several break-and-enters took place in New Westminster.
