SURREY — Surrey RCMP Constable Dario Devic is expected to appear in Surrey provincial court on Nov. 30 on a  charge of child luring.

Devic was arrested on Sept. 9 after Creep Catcher Surrey, a citizen group that aims to weed out “potential predators” and “blast” them in social media, did a sting outside a local mall.

A woman working with Creep Catcher Surrey posed as a 15-year-old girl and allegedly communicated with the officer online after posting an ad on Craigslist. A meeting was set up outside the Boston Pizza at Surrey Central Shopping Mall in Whalley and Creep Catcher Surrey president Ryan LaForge and his crew live-streamed the sting on the Internet.

Devic’s last court appearance, set for Oct. 19, was adjourned to Wednesday, Nov. 2. He didn’t appear in court on either date.

Supporters of Creep Catchers, wearing black hoodies and masking their faces with scarves, rallied outside the courthouse on Oct. 19. A handful of them were also at court Wednesday, when the arraignment hearing date was set.

LaForge told the Now another rally will be staged on Nov. 30 and he expects it will be bigger than the first.
