MULTIPLE charges have been laid against a Surrey man in relation to mail thefts in Whalley.
On May 4, Surrey RCMP responded to call of a suspicious man in the area of the 9600-block of 122 Street. Police received information that the man was allegedly carrying a crowbar and looking into multiple vehicles.
The suspicious man allegedly threatened a member of the public when they questioned him about his activity in the area. Surrey RCMP frontline officers quickly located the man and arrested him shortly thereafter. The man was allegedly in possession of several pieces of stolen mail at the time of his arrest.
Twenty-seven-year-old Codee Daun Mullin who has no fixed address was remanded in custody and has been charged with mail theft, possession of stolen property, uttering threats, possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose, and multiple counts of breach of probation order.
“While we continue to encourage the public to call police to report all suspicious activity, we also want to caution people against confronting suspicious individuals on their own,” said Constable Sarbjit K. Sangha, Media Relation Officer for Surrey RCMP. “Instead, we ask you to call police and report your observations from a safe location.”
