Surrey teen with stolen gear from Stanley Cup riot may not be off the hook

If he was in Vancouver on June 15, Karanvir Singh Saran could be part of a further investigation

  • Nov. 15, 2011 12:00 p.m.

A Surrey teen arrested with stolen property the day after the Stanley Cup riot in Vancouver may not be completely off the hook if Vancouver Police link him to criminal activity during the June 15 melee.

Karanvir Singh Saran, 18, was arrested for possession of stolen property after bragging about having the pilfered goods. His teacher witnessed the boast, brought him aside and called the Surrey RCMP.

Saran pled guilty and received an absolute discharge, as there was no way of linking him with the theft at the time.

That might not be the end of it for Saran if he was in Vancouver during the riot.

Cpl. Drew Grainger said the ladies swimwear Saran had came from a store that was vandalized during the riot.

“There’s the potential he could still be subject of the ongoing riot investigation,” Grainger said Tuesday. “He may be identified as contributing in that riot and could face charges in the Vancouver investigation.”

The Vancouver Police investigation continues.
