Surrey RCMP arrest man wanted on Canada-wide warrant

SURREY RCMP’s quick response to a break-and-enter lead to an arrest, charges and the execution of multiple outstanding warrants.

On March 16 at 1:26 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to the report of a break-and-enter in progress in the 14000-block of 103A Avenue. The residence was unoccupied at the time of the alleged break-in and the suspect was seen on video.

Police arrived on scene quickly and contained the residence. The suspect exited through a window and attempted to flee on foot. The Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Service was on scene and assisted with taking the suspect into custody.

The suspect was transported to Surrey RCMP cells where outstanding arrest warrants related to Burnaby RCMP, New Westminster Police, and Transit Police investigations were executed. The outstanding warrants included a Canada-wide warrant for two counts of break-and-enter out of Burnaby.

On March 17, 36-year-old Sean Trevor Cuddeford was charged with break-and-enter and obstructing a peace officer. He remains in custody awaiting his next court appearance.

“The offender is alleged to have committed serious offences in multiple jurisdictions and will now be brought before the courts,” said Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Cpl. Vanessa Munn, on Wednesday. “His arrest can be attributed directly to the quick coordinated response of our frontline officers and the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Service.”
