Stolen items worth $80k

A large collection of stolen goods has been recovered by the Surrey RCMP Property Crime Target Team.

The seizure of stolen property, worth more than $80,000, began as an investigation by officers into a residential break and enter on Feb. 11 in Newton. Property from that break and enter was later located for sale on the LetGo marketplace app.

RCMP located three further individuals – one was arrested for an outstanding warrant, and another was arrested for being in breach of his probation order. 

“With this investigation, we have been able to disrupt an organized group who are suspected of trafficking stolen property,” said Staff Sergeant Ryan Element.
