Christmas Bureau break and enter in Surrey

SURREY RCMP are currently investigating a break and enter incident from early Wednesday morning at the Christmas Bureau, a charitable organization that supports families in need during the holiday season.

On December 11, at 6:20 a.m., Surrey RCMP frontline officers responded to an alarm at the Christmas Bureau, located at 10240 City Parkway. Evidence at the scene has led investigators to believe a break and enter had occurred with three laptops and $6,000 in gift cards stolen.

This investigation is in its early stages and the Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit are engaged and will be following up with staff.

“To have an incident like this occur against a charity that works hard to support families during the holiday season is deplorable,” said Inspector Gurmakh Parmar. “I encourage anyone with information about this incident to contact police and help ensure we can support those that support the vulnerable in our community.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or, quoting file number 2019-191430.
