Charges laid against Dorozan brothers

A total of 21 charges of break-and-enter have been laid against a pair of brothers arrested last month in connection with a slew of property crimes in Surrey, Langley, White Rock and New Westminster

A total of 21 charges of break-and-enter have been laid against a pair of brothers arrested last month in connection with a slew of property crimes in Surrey, Langley, White Rock and New Westminster.

But while celebrating Crown approval of charges against Dane and Darwin Dorozan, Surrey RCMP warned residents there is still reason for vigilance, given a recent series of similar crimes in the Fraser Heights area.

Cpl. Drew Grainger said Friday that police believe one or more individuals are behind the spree, which included several residential break-ins in one afternoon.

“Many  of our city’s residents live on large rural properties which can be prone to these types of break-ins,” Grainger said. “On properties such as these a thief can move about… sometimes undetected. It is important then to always secure your homes and property even if you happen to be in the immediate vicinity.”

He recommended ensuring garage doors are closed and secured as one simple step that can reduce a person’s odds of being targeted.

Charges against the Dorozan brothers were approved Tuesday. The pair were arrested Aug. 15 following a residential break-in in South Surrey.

Dane Dorozan, 35, is facing two charges of break-and-enter and has been released on strict conditions; Darwin Dorozan, 36, remains in custody on 19 charges of break-and-enter. He is also charged with possession of stolen property and assault with a weapon.

Dane Dorozan is next scheduled to appear in Surrey Provincial Court Oct. 19; Darwin was to appear Sept. 30.
