Surrey RCMP identify two suspects in March jewelry store break-in

Mounties in Surrey have identified two men believed to be involved in a break and enter at a jewelry store a few months ago.

Officers say that on March 31, they got a call at 8 a.m. about two suspicious men behind the store — Damas Jewellery on 108 Avenue near 146 Street — carrying a safe and loading it into a vehicle.

The suspects are two men, aged 51 and 27, who investigators believe broke into the store through a business on the second floor.

Police also also believe the break-in went on for several hours, with the suspects using tools and entry devices.

The 51-year-old man has since been deported from Canada on a matter unrelated to this incident, according to the Surrey RCMP. The 27-year-old is not a resident of B.C., and police are seeking a Canada-wide warrant to find him.

Store owner Tamim Al Zein told CityNews earlier this month that the crime cost him $300,000. He says he was in between insurance companies as his insurance had just expired, and was unlucky enough to have the incident happen while he was uninsured.
