Arrest in South Surrey, Fleetwood liquor-store thefts announced

A 28-year-old Surrey man is facing charges in connection with a string of thefts from South Surrey and Fleetwood liquor stores.

Surrey RCMP have arrested a 28-year-old Surrey man in connection with a string of liquor-store thefts in South Surrey and Fleetwood.

Cpl. Scotty Schumann announced the arrest late Thursday morning, noting it resulted from a tip from the public.

“On Oct. 5, Surrey RCMP was contacted by a member of the public who believed they had identified and located the suspect in the Guildford area of the city after seeing our news release,” Schumann writes, referring to a release issued that morning which included a series of images captured by CCTV.

“Officers attended and arrested a 28-year-old male from Surrey who was wanted on charges of breach of probation.”

Police appealed for the public’s help identifying a prolific shoplifter earlier this week, noting that 23 liquor stores had been targeted since June 26 by what appeared to be the same individual.

Schumann noted Thursday that the investigation is ongoing, and police are recommending a number of theft charges. The arrested individual’s name was not released.
