Surrey RCMP say woman who was wanted on arrest warrant has turned herself in

Tessa-Lee Wahpooseywan is to appear in Surrey provincial court Nov.4, charged with two counts of break-and-enter

UPDATE: Tessa-Lee Wahpooseywan is no longer the subject of an arrest warrant, the Surrey RCMP reports. “Her warrant is no longer out there because she turned herself in on Wednesday and is now accused on two counts of break-and-enter. She’s charged and awaiting court,” Constable Richard Wright said Friday. She and Lawson are set to appear in Surrey provincial court on Monday, Nov. 4.

Surrey RCMP say David Lawson, 39, has been charged with 11 break-ins in Surrey and are looking for an “associate” of his.

Constable Richard Wright said the break-ins happened over the summer, in Whalley, Newton, Guildford and Cloverdale.

Lawson is charged with 11 counts of break-and-enter, and driving while prohibited, breaching parole conditions and two fraud-related charges.

Police are now looking for Tessa-Lee Wahpooseywan, an “associate” of Lawson, whom they allege was involved in two of the “break-and-enter incidents. A warrant has been issued for her arrest.

Police ask anyone with information where she is to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, at 1-800-222-TIPS.
