Thief steals truck trailer and $20,000 in lumber from Surrey business

Surrey RCMP release photos of March 1 heist in hopes of finding suspect

** This story has been updated

Police in Surrey are asking the public to help them track down $60,000 of property stolen from the Whalley/City Centre area, including $20,000 in lumber.

Surrey RCMP say a commercial truck trailer loaded with a storage container and $20,000 worth of ‘J grade KDHT’ lumber was stolen from a business on March 1 at 4:45 p.m. in the 10600-block of Timberland Road.

Security footage from the business shows a suspect hooking the trailer to the cab of a semi-truck and driving off the property.

In total, more than 2,700 pieces of lumber were stolen. Police say they were wrapped in “West Fraser Mills” wrapping paper.

The stolen container is a faded red colour and is marked, ‘TGCU 503616-0 / TARE: 3770’. The stolen trailer has the number #234 on it. It also has Canadian Tire mud flaps.

On Thursday (March 12), Surrey RCMP corrected its earlier news release about this case: “The owner of the stolen trailer has updated investigators that the wrong license plate number was provided previously to police. The trailer that has been stolen actually bears the license plate number D3664P and has a marked unit number of CDAZ6848.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or, if you wish to make an anonymous report, please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or solvecrime.ca, quoting file number 2020-33728.
