||Duece and Crook Robber
||September 24, 2014
Surrey RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying suspects involved in a series of service station and convenience store robberies this past month.
Between September 24th and November 6th, 2014 ten robberies occurred at various gas station and convenience stores throughout Surrey. The similar method in which these robberies were committed suggests that the same suspects are involved. In a majority of these robberies, a stolen Dodge Caravan has been reversed into the locked businesses front doors in order to gain entry to the store. After gaining entry, the suspects proceed to steal a large amount of cigarettes and, in some instances, lottery tickets. None of the employees were physically harmed during the robberies, however, they were physically threatened and intimidated.
The suspects appear to be white males, between 5’9” to 6’2’, and approximately 180-200 lbs. (Please see attached photos of one of the suspects).
Police believe that the stolen cigarettes are being sold in bulk to an unidentified commercial buyer and are looking for further information that could help identify the suspects. A number of investigative steps have been taken including interviews with multiple witnesses, retrieval of forensic evidence, video surveillance, and identification of possible persons and vehicles of interest, however, the suspects have yet to be identified.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP Robbery Section at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
