Surrey RCMP is informing the public of the arrests of two prolific offenders in relation to a string of break and enters in the South Surrey area.
As a result of the on-going investigation into a recent increase in break and enters in the South Surrey area, the Surrey RCMP Property Crime Target Team and Community Response Unit have arrested two men. The investigation included a search warrant which was executed on October 23, 2019, at a residence in the 13100-block of 24 Avenue. The search yielded a number of items associated to the break and enters and thefts in South Surrey.
Two men from Surrey, 33 year-old Bradley Richards and 41 year-old Michael Reeves, have been charged with fraud offences relating to credit cards stolen during the break and enter occurrences.
The investigation is ongoing and currently includes additional suspects, with further charges being considered.
“To have your home broken into by someone can negatively affect a family and their peace of mind,” said Inspector Mike Hall, Surrey RCMP Proactive Enforcement Officer. “Our hope is that those affected can take some solace from knowing the investigation has yielded positive results.”
Anyone with information regarding the break and enter or fraud offences 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.
