Sur­rey: Sur­rey RCMP Front­line of­fi­cers ar­rested two men, and seized drugs and prop­erty as a re­sult of a fraud com­plaint in South Sur­rey. At ap­prox­i­mately 8:30 am on Jan­uary 6, 2019, of­fi­cers at­tended a busi­ness in the 2300 block of 160th Street in Sur­rey. The busi­ness was re­port­ing that a man was at­tempt­ing to use a credit card which did not bear his name.

Upon ar­rival in­ves­ti­ga­tor’s lo­cated the sus­pect, a male in his 30s from Langley, seated in the pas­sen­ger seat of a ve­hi­cle parked out­side and ar­rested him for breach­ing his court or­dered con­di­tions.

Dur­ing a search of the man, of­fi­cers found him in pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia. Of­fi­cers also lo­cated drug para­pher­na­lia and sus­pected il­le­gal drugs in the ve­hi­cle.

A short time later a sec­ond man, in his 40s from Sur­rey, re­turned to the ve­hi­cle and was ar­rested for pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­cluded a fur­ther search of the ve­hi­cle and as a re­sult, po­lice lo­cated and seized sev­eral items in­clud­ing a black tac­ti­cal vest with a “Po­lice” patch and a bag of sus­pected metham­phetamine which es­ti­mated to be 548 doses. “Par­tic­u­larly on the front­line of polic­ing, there are no rou­tine calls,” says In­spec­tor Kevin Be­son, Sur­rey RCMP ‘C’ Watch Duty Of­fi­cer. “Our of­fi­cers en­counter chal­lenges and sit­u­a­tions on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, that present an op­por­tu­nity to make the city a safer place, like in this in­stance where the of­fi­cers were able to re­move po­ten­tially il­licit drugs from the street.” The man who is al­leged to have breached his con­di­tions was held in cus­tody, the sec­ond man was re­leased as the in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about this in­ci­dent is asked to call Sur­rey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or con­tact Crime Stop­pers if you wish to re­main anony­mous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www. solve­crime.ca
