Police asking for assistance in South Surrey break-and-enter
Police are searching for a suspect following a brazen early-morning break-and-enter at a South Surrey electronics store last week.
Earlier this week, an RCMP news release asked the public's assistance in locating two men in connection to a break-in at a business in the 2200-block of 160 Street. Police announced Friday afernoon they had identified one of the two men, but continue to search for the other (left, in photo above).
A black Ford F-350 was used to ram the side of the electronics store in order to gain access July 31.
Surrey RCMP responded to a report of an alarm at the store at approximately 6 a.m., where they found the truck.
A subsequent review of video surveillance identified two men leaving the premises with a number of items.
The first is described as a Caucasian, approximately 5'11", 180 pounds wearing a black toque, black hoodie and black shoes. The second is described as a Caucasian, approximately 5'11", 180 pounds and in his late 20s with short dark hair and a tattoo on his collarbone/neckline, wearing a brown velour tracksuit and a shoulder bag.
The pickup truck used to break into the building was identified as being stolen nearby.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca
