$10K reward offered by Surrey union after office break-in

SURREY — A $10,000 reward has been offered by a Surrey-based union after a break-in at its offices.

The International Longshore & Warehouse Union Local 502 was the target of the break-and-enter, according to a union statement released Tuesday afternoon (June 2). No date of the crime was made public by the union. 

"The thieves targeted a safe that was primarily used for document and record storage, and there was very little if any cash kept in the safe," the union stated.

"Of primary importance to our organization is the personal information contained in confidential documents that could be used by criminals to compromise our members’ privacy. The other extremely important item is a record book containing records of our proceedings and meeting minutes."

ILWU Local 502 is offering a reward of $10,000 for information leading to the recovery of the stolen documents and/or for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals involved.

The union’s office is located at 11828 Tannery Road in Surrey, according to its website. 

Union officials ask anyone with information about the theft to contact Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or the Surrey RCMP non-emergency line at 604-502-6390, quoting File # 2015-72999.
