Two of B.C.'s 10 most wanted are from Surrey.
The RCMP released an alert to the public this week of the top 10 most wanted suspects in the province. Two of them are from here.
Dean Jeffrey Anderson is wanted by the Surrey RCMP for assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and breach of probation.
He is well known to police and is considered a violent offender.
He is alleged to have hit someone with a bottle outside a bar in North Surrey.
He is Caucasian, 41, 5'11", weighing 221 lbs. and has brown hair and brown eyes.
He is considered armed and dangerous, and the public is warned not to try to apprehend him.
If you see him, call 911 immediately, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Also making the list is Apollo Alex Verde, from Surrey, who is wanted for 32 counts of fraud or fraud-related offences. He is alleged to have committed extensive credit card fraud as well as obtaining unauthorized access to credit data from one of Canada's largest credit reporting agencies.
The illegally obtained credit information allegedly allowed Verde to access bank accounts and also obtain high value credit cards. Many of these credit cards found their way to Las Vegas area casinos, where large cash advances were obtained.
During their investigation police discovered that Verde had also allegedly been involved in the fraudulent transfer of land titles. He went so far as to steal the title to a property owned by his own mother and then obtained a mortgage on the property, using those funds to finance a Ferrari.
Verde is also wanted for related offences in Ontario, Alberta, and the United States.
He is described as an Indo-Canadian, 38 years old, 5'8" , weighing 185 lbs.with black hair and brown eyes.
He is formerly known as Jaspal Singh Virdi of Surrey. If you see him, call the nearest RCMP detachment, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
“We asked detachments and specialized investigative units across the province for the names of their most wanted suspects," said Insp. Tim Shields, senior spokesperson for the RCMP in British Columbia. "These 10 are the names we got back. They are wanted for violent and serious offences, and the sooner we can get them off our streets, the better. We also want to send these ten wanted people a message: The public is now watching for you as well, and you have nowhere to run and hide.”
