Charges laid in connection to theft of government cheques in Surrey

SURREY RCMP announced on Thursday that two people have been charged in relation to the recovery of stolen government issued cheques by Surrey’s COVID Compliance and Enforcement Team (CCET) on April 25.

As a result of the investigation by the CCET, Tyler Missen, 30, and Christine Grasby, 35, are facing charges related to possession of stolen mail and documents, possession of fraudulent documents, and forgery. The charges stem from incidents which occurred in Surrey and Coquitlam.

The two accused were originally arrested on April 25. Missen has remained in custody, while Christine Grasby was released on conditions.

“This was a particularly concerning incident for people in the community who had their government cheques stolen,” said acting Community Services Officer, Inspector Wendy Mehat. “We are pleased with the outcome and the charges laid in this investigation.”
