Suspect in Langley case faces new charges in Surrey

Multiple weapons-related charges laid against man wanted in Ontario

A suspect in a Langley break and enter case is facing new weapons-related charges following a Tuesday (July 16) stop by police in Surrey.

Keith Lewis Moro, described as a 42-year-old man of no fixed address, was arrested by officers with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC) after they spotted a vehicle driving erratically in the Newton area.

A CFSEU-BC statement says a search found a bag in the car containing a loaded .45 calibre handgun, bear spray, zap straps, and gloves.

Moro has been charged with multiple offences including careless use of a firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition and possession of a firearm knowing the serial number had been altered, defaced, or removed.

Moro is currently charged by the Langley RCMP with break and enter, two counts of possession of stolen property, and possession of break-in tools.

The CFSEU-BC statement says Moro has a lengthy criminal record dating back to 1991 but is not believed to have any links to gangs.

He is prohibited from possessing any firearms for life stemming from a previous Sudbury, Ontario firearms and drug-related conviction.

He is wanted in Lambton, Ontario for obstructing a peace officer, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, failing to stop for police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failing to attend court, and on a number of Ontario Highway Traffic Act warrants.  He’s also wanted by the Ontario Provincial Police for failing to comply with an undertaking.
