Rioters overturned cars and then burned them following the Vancouver Canuck's Game 7 loss in the Stanley Cup finals on June 15. Police announced riot-related charges against another Surrey resident on Wednesday (Dec. 7).

Another suspected Surrey rioter charged

Police force steps up to help Stanley Cup riot investigation team.

The Vancouver Police Fugitive Task Force is stepping in to help the Integrated Riot Investigation Team (IRIT), the RCMP and Vancouver Police Department announced Wednesday.

“We won’t be backing off this investigation and neither have the public,” said Insp. Les Yeo.

Members from the VPD task force will help IRIT investigators arrest suspected rioters who have been formally charged and have outstanding arrest warrants.

Meanwhile, more riot charges were approved by Crown Friday, say police.

Surrey resident John Sawicki, 19, now faces two counts of mischief over $5,000, participating in a riot and arson.

Yeo said the public still provides three to four tips a day regarding the riots and he hopes that continues.
