Suspect arrested in Surrey liquor store thefts

A 28-year-old Surrey man is facing charges related to liquor store thefts in Fleetwood and South Surrey

Police are investigating a fatal crash in Newton after black Saturn crashed into a pole early Sunday morning.

SURREY — Police have arrested a suspect related to multiple liquor store thefts in Fleetwood and South Surrey.

Since June 26, four different stores have been hit at least 23 times.

A 28-year-old Surrey man, whose name police have not yet released, is facing theft charges as well as charges of breach of probation.

“Retail theft can cost merchants thousands of dollars annually,” noted Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “The net result is often higher costs passed to the consumer. Not only do businesses directly affected benefit when a prolific thief is caught, but so do consumers.”
