Today (November 1), Surrey RCMP announced the arrest of a suspect linked to Cloverdale crimes and they are also seeking the public’s help in identifying another suspect who is believed to be connected to break-and-enters in Surrey.
An investigation into several property crimes in Cloverdale led to the arrest of 26-year-old Christian Gauvreau-May of Surrey.
Investigators believe he is connected to a series of 11 incidents in Cloverdale, ranging from vehicle thefts to the use of stolen property to commit other offences, which have been reported since September 25.
Gauvreau-May is facing 33 charges including theft, motor-vehicle theft, possessing stolen property, possessing break-in instruments, trespassing at night, possessing and using credit cards and ID not in his name, obstructing a police officer, and failure to comply with undertakings and probation orders.
