Surrey man charged in burglary crime spree

SURREY — A Surrey man has been charged with 21 burglary related crimes after a spate of residential break-ins in Cloverdale and South Surrey late November.

Surrey RCMP’s auto crime and property crime target teams arrested Curtis Anderson, 22, in the 9600-block of 192nd Street after a foot chase. Cpl. Bert Paquet said he is alleged to have committed multiple vehicle thefts and break-ins between Nov.24-26.

Anderson is charged with five counts of theft under $5,000, four counts of break and enter with intent, three counts of identity theft, two counts of mischief, two counts of trespassing at night, two counts of resisting arrest, and possession of stolen property under $5,000, possession of break-in tools and possession of a controlled substance.

He is expected to appear in court today (Thursday).

"Although an arrest has been made, we continue to urge the public to remain vigilant," Paquet said. "At this time of the year thieves become bolder knowing that some residents are making larger purchases for the holidays. Reduce your chances of becoming a victim by removing all valuables and shopping bags from your vehicle, locking and latching all doors and windows of your home, and leaving a light on when you are not at home."
