Arrest follows three-day property-crime spree in South Surrey/Cloverdale

A 22-year-old Surrey man is to appear in court Dec. 4 on 21 charges.

A man suspected in a recent spree of vehicle thefts and residential break-ins in Cloverdale and South Surrey is to appear in court this week on 21 charges.

Surrey RCMP announced Wednesday that a “prolific thief” was arrested by the Auto Crime and Property Crime Target Team on Nov. 26 in the 9600-block of 192 St., following a brief foot pursuit.

Charges were laid in connection with crimes committed Nov. 24-26, and include five counts of theft under $5,000, four counts of break-and-enter with intent, two counts of wilfully resisting or obstructing a peace officer and possession of stolen property under $5,000.

Despite the arrest, police are urging the public to remain vigilant in securing their homes and vehicles.

“At this time of year, thieves become bolder knowing that some residents are making larger purchases for the holidays,” Cpl. Bert Paquet said in a news release.

“Reduce your chances of becoming a victim by removing all valuables and shopping bags from your vehicle, locking and latching all doors and windows of your home and leaving a light on when you are not at home.”

Surrey resident Curtis Anderson, 22, is in custody and is scheduled to appear in Surrey Provincial Court tomorrow (Dec. 4).
