Surrey RCMP: Help locate stolen medical equipment

SURREY RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance with locating two Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines – medical machines used for sleep apnea – which were stolen from a vehicle in Whalley.

On March 10, Surrey RCMP received information regarding a theft from a vehicle from which two CPAP machines were stolen in the 10100-block of University Drive. The machines were contained inside cases that looked like ones carrying cameras, making them a target for thieves looking for opportunities to steal high value items. The machines were comprised of a hose, mask, adaptor, and a power cord.

It is believed that the suspect(s) may have discarded the machines upon realizing the cases contained medical equipment.

Anyone with information about this incident or who has located the stolen items, 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
