Thirty-seven people have turned themselves into police

Nine Surrey rioters confess

Police recommending charges against 37 who have turned themselves in

Nine Surrey residents are among 37 who admit to causing trouble during last month’s Stanley Cup riots.

In statistics released Wednesday, police say they are recommending charges against all 37. As well, they continue to investigate an additional 111 people for criminal acts relating to the June 15 riot, and “hundreds more” have been identified.

Chaos broke out in Downtown Vancouver as the final between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins progressed. Police say they’ve so far received 4,300 email tips and 15,000 pictures related to the riot, and are aware of 202 incidents, each involving as many as 300 individuals. Alleged crimes range from mischief to assaulting a peace officer.

Anyone with images or information on individuals involved in the riots may contact police at riot@vpd.ca

Those wanting to confess may call 778-838-2124.
