White Rock traffic stop leads to multiple charges

Three charged in investigation with links to Sechelt, Langley and Vancouver.

An early-morning traffic stop in White Rock sparked a police investigation that led to theft-related charges against three people.

Around 1 a.m. on June 20,  White Rock RCMP officers pulled a vehicle over in the 800-block of 160 Street.

Police announced the bust Friday, saying information gathered during the stop resulted in a “multi-jurisdiction police investigation” and a raid by White RCMP which recovered items stolen from break-and-enters in Sechelt, Vancouver and Langley.

Two men from Surrey, James Moore, 28, and Michael Boretzky, 28, and a woman from Vancouver, Afsenah Bayazidi, 18, have been been charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000.

Moore and Boretzky are also charged with breaking and entering.

Both men were in custody as of Tuesday, while the woman was not.

A White Rock RCMP statement said they are continuing their investigation with police in Langley, Sechelt and Vancouver and are “hopeful” that further charges will result.
