  • Individuals being drugged & robbed while utilizing escort services throughout Surrey

Surrey RCMP is cautioning members of the public following several instances involving individuals being drugged and robbed while utilizing escort services throughout the region. 

Police have become aware of several instances of individuals hiring an escort online, meeting at pre-arranged locations across the Lower Mainland, being drugged and waking up to find their valuables stolen. 

These occurrences are concerning as they pose a high risk to the health and safety of the individuals being drugged with unknown substances.  If you have been drugged, it is highly recommended that you seek medical assistance immediately.

Any encounters that involve meeting up with unknown individuals that take place behind closed doors, brings about inherent risk to all parties involved. If you choose to meet with unknown individuals, it is recommended to take precautions, including:

  • Maintain continuity of all food or beverages you consume to ensure that they have not been spiked.
  • Do not consume anything provided to you by the other person.
  • Do not use drugs or alcohol that can impair your ability to keep yourself safe.
  • Let a trusted person know where you are who can contact police should you not check in with them by a specified time.

Police believe that there are likely additional victims who are reluctant to make a police report.

Surrey RCMP is encouraging anyone who has been a victim of a similar incident to contact their police of jurisdiction and make a police report.
