Bust yields house full of stolen property

Langley Mounties raided a Surrey home looking for stolen goods, and needed a three-tonne truck to make a dent in the hoard.

On March 16th, officers from the Street Enforcement Unit swooped down on a property in the 5500 block of 129th Street.

The only occupant of the property, a woman identified as a prolific property crime offender, was arrested on outstanding warrants, said said Cpl. Holly Marks, a spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The 30-year-old woman is facing charges.

It took a whole day to fill a rented cargo truck and two other vehicles with the goods they found.

A 2002 Porche Boxter, stolen during a break and enter on Valentine’s Day in Surrey, was also recovered.

The 160 pieces of stolen property are believed to be linked to burglaries between November last year and this March across both Surrey and Langley.

Among the items found were “virtually the complete contents of a home,” Marks said.

The majority of the goods, including the Porche, have already been returned to their rightful owners, said Marks.

The rest of the items are now being displayed online, as officers hope to find the original owners.

The hoard of stolen goods is so huge, officers have posted photos in multiple categories. Remaining to be returned are everything from snowboards and skis to fur coats, from watches and jewelry to ornate tables and artworks.

If you see something that belongs to you, police are asking that you call the Street Enforcement Unit’s property line at 604-532-3398. Leave your name and number and an officer will be in touch.
