Crescent Beach bonfires lead to tickets, arrest

Surrey RCMP respond to complaints from local residents

Surrey RCMP wrote dozens of violation tickets last weekend in Crescent Beach in response to local residents’ concerns about “unlawful bonfires” and groups congregating on the beach.

During foot patrols of the area on Friday and Saturday evenings, officers from the RCMP’s Crime Response Unit issued tickets for bonfires – some of which were left unattended, and for which Surrey Fire Services were called in to extinguish – and also issued $230 violation tickets for consuming alcohol in public.

A number of vehicles were also checked during nearby roadblocks, and tickets for speeding and not wearing seat belts were also issued.

As well, a small amount of marijuana was seized from one vehicle, RCMP said in a release. In the same vehicle, one passenger was also found to be the subject of an out-of-province arrest warrant.

“As the summer season heats up, our officers will be conducting foot and bike patrols along with traffic enforcement in some of the more popular areas of our city to congregate,” Surrey RCMP Corp. Scotty Schumann said in a news release issued Wednesday.

“These high visibility patrols are meant to help keep the peace and control any potentially unsafe situations. Surrey RCMP wants to ensure that Surrey residents have a fun and safe summer.”

To report any illegal activities at Surrey’s beaches, parks or other areas please contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or make a report online.
