Cloverdale theft a reminder to businesses to record valuables

Police are asking businesses in the 17700-block of 56 Avenue in Cloverdale to check their surveillance footage to help solve a recent break-in.

Sometime around 2:47 a.m. on July 16, Cooperators Insurance Services in Clover Square Village was broken into. The front glass door was smashed, allowing the suspect to gain entry and rummage through the front reception desk and an office in the back.

A laptop was stolen. The suspect left via a rear door and was then left unlocked. The Surrey RCMP's dog unit tracked a suspect to 184 Street, but the suspect remains at large.

The incident – detailed in a Heads Up! Alert – reminds businesses to secure or lock up items of value, and to ensure that a record is kept of model and serial numbers for valuables.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Dan Gibbons, commander of the Cloverdale/Port Kells District 4 office at 604-599-7642.
