Surrey RCMP is updating that two medical devices that were stolen from a vehicle have been recovered with the assistance of the public. (See previous release – 2021-03-12)

After other investigative avenues were unsuccessful, Surrey RCMP asked for help from the public to locate two CPAP machines, which were stolen from a vehicle in Whalley. Two days later, on March 14, 2021, a member of the public turned the stolen equipment over to police in a Whalley parking lot. It is not known where the person obtained them.

We would like to thank the public and our media partners for helping with the recovery of the medical equipment and of course, the person who turned the items in, says Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Corporal Joanie Sidhu. The owner of the equipment has been contacted and has also expressed their gratitude.

Surrey RCMP frontline officers are arranging with the owner to return the items to them. Anyone with information about the theft from vehicle 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
