Surrey RCMP have released sketches of the suspects involved in stealing a vehicle that had a baby inside in Cloverdale.
At 8:35 a.m. on Nov. 9, Surrey RCMP received a report that a vehicle was stolen with a baby strapped into a car seat inside. The vehicle had been parked and left running at a residence in the 17200-block of 58 Avenue.
Surrey RCMP “immediately deployed multiple resources including all available Frontline officers, plain-clothes units and the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Service.” An Amber Alert was also issued.
At 9:20 a.m., a bystander found the vehicle abandoned with the baby still inside in the vehicle in the 5900-block of 177B Street.
Now, according to a release from Cpl. Vanessa Munn, officers determined there were two male suspects involved in the theft, one who stole the vehicle with the baby inside and another who was driving a secondary vehicle.
Munn said the secondary vehicle was a black Mercedes SUV.
Police described the first suspect as Caucasian, with a heavy-set build, in his late 30s. He had short hair, stubble on his face and was wearing a dark long-sleeved shirt.
The second suspect, according to police, is described as Caucasian, with a skinny build. In his late 30s to mid-40s, he was bald, missing a tooth and wearing a grey sweatsuit.
Police have also released photographs of two possible witness vehicles who were in the area of the residence where the vehicle was stolen from.
