SURREY RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance to locate a suspect vehicle that was used in a break-and-enter to a business in the Morgan Crossing area of South Surrey.
On Tuesday, December 21 at 4:26 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a vehicle smashing the front door of a business with a truck in the area of 15700-block of Croydon Drive. The suspect(s) gained access to the store and stole approximately $5,000 in merchandise before fleeing the scene in the truck.
The suspect vehicle is described as a 2000’s grey Dodge Dakota, unknown license plate, with damage to the rear lights on the passenger side. There were three or four persons in the vehicle at the time of the offence. It is not known whether it was a stolen vehicle.
Officers are conducting neighbourhood canvassing and collecting any witness statements and CCTV footage. The Integrated Forensic Identification Team was called in to assist with collecting any potential evidence.
“This kind of brazen break-and-enter, using a vehicle to smash through the glass of a store, is dangerous and causes extensive damage to businesses,” said Constable Sarbjit K. Sangha. “We are aware of two similar previous incidents in South Surrey using a similar method. Our officers are conducting extra patrols in the business corridor and we encourage the public to call police if they see anything suspicious.”
If you have any information on the whereabouts of the vehicle or were a witness to this crime, you are requested to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
