Surrey RCMP arrest man on Canada-wide warrant out of Burnaby

Sean Trevor Cuddeford, 36, has been charged with break-and-enter and obstructing a police officer in relation to a Surrey incident. He was wanted on break-and-enter charges out of Burnaby at the time.

A man wanted on a warrant for break-and-enter charges in Burnaby was picked up in Surrey by police responding to a break-and-enter in progress in that city last week.

On March 16 at 1:26 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a residential break-and-enter in progress in the 14000-block of 103A Avenue, according to a police news release.

The residence was unoccupied at the time, but the suspect was seen on video, according to the release.

Officers arrived quickly and contained the residence, police said.

A suspect who exited through a window and attempted to flee on foot was taken into custody with help from police dogs, according to the release.

The suspect was taken to the Surrey RCMP detachment, where arrest warrants related to Burnaby RCMP, New Westminster Police and Transit Police files were executed.

The outstanding warrants included a Canada-wide warrant for two counts of break-and-enter out of Burnaby, according to the release.

Sean Trevor Cuddeford, 36, has now been charged with break-and-enter and obstructing a police officer in relation to the Surrey incident.

He remains in custody awaiting his next court appearance.

“The offender is alleged to have committed serious offences in multiple jurisdictions and will now be brought before the courts,” Surrey RCMP media relations officer, Cpl. Vanessa Munn said in the release.
