Police nab three in alleged Surrey fencing operation

More than $100,000 in stolen property seized.

Three people have been arrested in an alleged fencing scheme at a store on King George Boulevard.

The operation, police say, purchased property from drug addicts who stole it to support their habit. The stolen goods were then resold to other retailers, sent overseas, or further distributed at flea markets.

Police seized $10,000 in cash and well over $100,000 in stolen property. A Mercedes Benz believed to have been used to transport the stolen goods was also seized as offence-related property.

Anyone with information about this, or any operation like it, is asked to call the Vancouver Police Anti-Fencing Unit at 604-717-3220. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
