An early-morning traffic stop in White Rock sparked a police investigation that led to theft-related charges against three people.
Around 1 a.m. on June 20, White Rock RCMP officers pulled a vehicle over in the 800-block of 160 Street.
Police announced the bust Friday, saying information gathered during the stop resulted in a “multi-jurisdiction police investigation” and a raid by White RCMP which recovered items stolen from break-and-enters in Sechelt, Vancouver and Langley.
Two men from Surrey, James Moore, 28, and Michael Boretzky, 28, and a woman from Vancouver, Afsenah Bayazidi, 18, have been been charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000.
Moore and Boretzky are also charged with breaking and entering.
Both men were in custody as of Tuesday, while the woman was not.
A White Rock RCMP statement said they are continuing their investigation with police in Langley, Sechelt and Vancouver and are “hopeful” that further charges will result.
