Surrey man David Sinh Liu, 40, is facing 10 charges related to seven recent break-ins in Surrey and Langley
Corporal Joanie Sidhu said the Surrey RCMP Property Crime Target Team (PCTT) launched its investigation following a “noted rise” in residential break-ins in Guildford and Fleetwood at the end of July into September.
“Many of the break-and-enters were noted to have similar earmarks, such as suspect vehicle descriptions, and methods used by the suspect, or suspects,” she said.
Sidhu said police executed a search warrant at a residence in the 16700-block of 85A Avenue in Surrey on Sept. 12 “which led to the seizure of numerous stolen items.”
Sergeant Robert Dalphond, of the PCTT, said it’s “not uncommon” for police to see a “significant number of incidents attributed to a single person or small network of individuals.
“That’s why coordinated work between investigators and criminal analysts is an essential part of our strategy to tackle property crime,” Dalphond said.
