Surrey RCMP investigating theft of huge electrical transformers

SURREY — Police are investigating the theft of two huge electrical transformers and other industrial-grade equipment worth $200,000 that were stolen from a business in South Surrey.

One is 600 pounds and the other is 14,000 pounds. They were taken from a business in the 19000-block of 27th Avenue. There were two thefts, on Oct. 29th and August 26.

Surrey RCMP Sgt. Paul Hayes noted the transformers are very large, extremely heavy and the theft would have required vehicles with lifting equipment and several people to do the job.

“We are hoping that members of our community will come forward if they have any knowledge about these incidents or think they have seen the large electrical transformers being stored or hidden somewhere,” he said.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
