'Top 10' car thief suspect arrested
One of the province's alleged most prolific car thieves has been arrested.
On Tuesday, April 19, officers with the Surrey RCMP Auto Crime Target Team arrested Mark Forrest, along with his associate Desiree Belisle, after watching two people strip down an older-model Honda Accord, which was reported stolen out of White Rock earlier in the day.
Police surveillance continued as the pair went to an automotive shop in the 19300 block of Enterprise Way, with the vehicle parts in tow.
The man and woman were arrested without incident.
Both Forrest and Belisle are in custody facing a number of stolen property and theft charges.
Forrest was listed as one of the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team’s "Top 10 Most Wanted" car theft suspects before his arrest.
