SURREY — Police are hoping the public can help identify a man suspected of repeatedly robbing liquor stores in Surrey.

Four liquor stores in Fleetwood and South Surrey have been hit at least 23 times since June 26, police say.

It’s believed the same man is behind them all.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, in his late 20s or early 30s, six feet tall and 170 pounds. He has been seen wearing a grey Puma hat and dark blue zip-up hoodie.

“Retail theft can cost merchants thousands of dollars annually,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann in a release. “The net result is often higher costs passed to the customer. Not only do the businesses directly affected benefit when a prolific thief is caught, but so do customers.”
