Update from Sergeant Mike Spencer,Guildford/Fleetwood Community Response Unit, RCMP.
I hope that everyone in Fraser Heights who I have come to know over the past couple of years are coping well during these trying times.
I have just finished going over the results of the March and April statistics for Fraser Heights, and I thought I would share the findings with you. Please feel free to share them with anyone in Fraser Heights who might be interested in them. I have tried to break them down to make sense to anyone reading them, while painting an accurate picture… without going into so much detail that people stop reading (a problem I often create!!)
I have also attached to this the Surrey RCMP’s 2019 Report to the Community, which was literally just released to the public today. (Note: this could not be attached, but if you are interested in a copy, please email: Surrey_Webmaster@rcmp-grc.gc.ca with the subject line: 2019 Report to the Community).
You can also make this document available to everyone in Fraser Heights, if you feel so inclined.
As far as the statistics go for Fraser Heights over the full two calendar months of March & April, 2020, there was the following reported to the Surrey RCMP:
A total of two (2) Residential B&E’s were reported
- One was to an unoccupied new house under construction where the suspect was scared off by an alarm system and fled immediately after tripping it. Nothing was stolen. The other was a male who literally walked into an unlocked basement door during the evening, spoke to the person in the house, and then left. It is unclear to the homeowner and the Surrey RCMP if this person was confused, suffering from mental issues, or actually looking to commit a crime in the house. There was a time delay in this being reported to the RCMP and police were unable to locate and question the subject of complaint.
A total of four (4) Cars were reported stolen from Fraser Heights
- Two of these cars were stolen with keys – one of the sets of keys being found by the suspect when he broke into the car next to it in the same driveway. Of the four stolen cars, two were recovered in Ridge Meadows, and another was recovered in Abbotsford. The RCMP Forensic Unit located fingerprints in two of these vehicles upon recovery and the investigations for those are ongoing. None of these cars had any anti-theft devices being used, other than the two that were stolen with keys – unfortunately the built-in anti-theft device in these cars are thwarted when the suspect is able to use the keys.
