POLICE BRIEFS: Man dies after being hit by car

Struck by Jeep while crossing 152 Street near 68 Avenue.

A man is dead after being struck by a car on Friday (June 14) evening in Newton.

At 10 p.m., the man was crossing westbound on 152 Street at 68 Avenue when he was hit by a southbound Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The pedestrian died at the scene.

The man was not crossing at a marked crosswalk, and the driver of the Cherokee stayed on scene and was cooperative with police.

 

Man shot in Whalley

Police were called Friday afternoon after a 27-year-old man arrived at hospital with apparent gunshot wounds.

The injuries are believed to be serious.

The investigation revealed that the man sustained the injuries during an altercation at a home in the 14200-block of 108 Avenue.

Police have identified a suspect, in what appears to be a targeted incident.

 

Thieves are out in force

As warmer temperatures roll in, Surrey residents will spend more time working or relaxing in their backyards.

While doing so, ask the following questions: Is the garage door closed, front door locked and car window rolled up?

Every year at this time, the Surrey RCMP notices a rise in reported break-and-enters throughout the city.

While the seasonal numbers remain fairly consistent from year to year, what is also consistent is the way some thieves easily enter unsecured homes, garages or vehicles.

“According to our crime analysts, during the past two weeks over half of the residential break and enters in one particular area of our city involved insecure premises,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “By using simple crime prevention tips our local residents can play a crucial role in reducing their potential for being a victim of residential theft.”

Paquet advises the following:

• Keep the garage door closed;

• Lock vehicles and ensure there are no valuables in plain sight;

• With the home, consider a security system and always lock doors and windows. Alert your neighbours if you will be away for a while.

• Always call police if you see suspicious activity.

“A lot of our successful investigations and arrests are initiated by residents who first called us to report a suspicious person or activity,” said Paquet. “They definitely are an extension of our officers into our community.”
