Two South Surrey men are facing charges in connection with the theft Tuesday of a purse from a vehicle parked in White Rock.

White Rock RCMP were called to the 1400-block of Anderson Street shortly after 4 p.m. Nov. 13, after a woman saw a man break the window of her late-model Ford Explorer and steal her purse.

The thief was then seen fleeing the area with a second man, in a brown, older-model Toyota.

Fortunately for police, the woman noted the Toyota's licence-plate number and the vehicle's direction of travel, enabling officers to locate two men nearby in a vehicle matching the description provided. They recovered the stolen purse from the same vehicle.

Chad Gunness and Bradley Richardson, both 26, appeared in court Nov. 14. The pair are both charged with possession of stolen property, mischief and theft in connection with the incident. Gunness is additionally charged with possession of break-in tools and failing to comply with a probation order.

According to police, both men are due back in court later this month.
