SURREY — The Criminal Justice Branch (CJB), Ministry of Justice, announced today (Nov. 18) that no charges have been approved against three members of the Surrey RCMP involved in an arrest on Feb. 28, 2015.

In the course of removing the suspect from the scene of the arrest, the suspect became resistant and was physically restrained.

“During this process the suspect suffered injuries including a broken hip. The incident was investigated by the Independent Investigations Office (IIO), which subsequently submitted a Report to Crown Counsel (RCC) for review by the CJB,” reads a statement from the Criminal Justice Branch.

“Following an investigation, where the Chief Civilian Director of the IIO determines that an officer may have committed an offence, the IIO submits a report to the CJB. The Chief Civilian Director does not make a recommendation on whether charges should be approved.”

On Feb. 28, 2015, Surrey RCMP officers responded to a 911 complaint from a landlord about a tenant who was “trashing” the suite downstairs. Three officers responded to the call and attended at a basement suite in Surrey.
