Thieves have looted the Surrey Christmas Bureau, which was already struggling to receive enough donations for the holiday season.

“To have an incident like this occur against a charity that works hard to support families during the holiday season is deplorable,” says Inspector Gurmakh Parmar of the Surrey RCMP. “I encourage anyone with information about this incident to contact police and help ensure we can support those that support the vulnerable in our community.”

According to a police statement, at 6:20 a.m. Wednesday, frontline officers responded to an alarm at the Christmas Bureau, located at 10240 City Parkway. Evidence at the scene has led investigators to believe a break-and-enter had occurred .

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca, quoting file number 2019-191430.
