File # 2021-193564

Surrey RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance to locate a suspect vehicle that was used in a break & enter to a business in the Morgan Crossing area of South Surrey.

On December 21, 2021 at 4:26 am, 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 lamps on the passenger side. The vehicle was occupied with 3-4 persons inside at the time of the offence. It is not known whether it was a stolen vehicle.

Our officers will be 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, says Cst 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 you were a witness to this crime, please call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
