Thief steals package with expensive stroller and uses a stolen Mercedes to commit the crime

  • Thief steals package with expensive stroller and uses a stolen Mercedes to commit the crime

Burnaby RCMP have released a video where an Amazon package containing a stroller worth more than $1,500 was stolen from the front doorstep of a home in Surrey.

The theft caught on camera shows a vehicle with its trunk already open pulling up to a doorstep with a large box sitting out front. Within moments, a woman from the vehicle grabs the package and is seen on camera jamming the box into the car.

The suspect’s face and car’s license plate were not clearly captured in the video.

The next day, the victim of the theft noticed the same stolen stroller for sale online on marketplace.

Burnaby RCMP’s Prolific Offender Suppression Team (POST) took conduct of the investigation after identifying a male suspect.

On November 26, a search warrant was executed at the suspect’s home in Burnaby.

The stroller, which was still in its original box was recovered from the home, along with a stolen Mercedes Benz used in the theft.

Our Prolific Offender Suppression Team worked quickly and was thankfully successful in being able to reunite the victim with her stolen stroller, said Cpl. Mike Kalanj with Burnaby RCMP. In this case, even a security camera system wasn’t enough to deter thieves. We are urging everyone to take precautions with deliveries over the holidays.

The suspect, who is known to police, was arrested for possession of stolen property, dangerous driving, breach of conditions, and on an unrelated warrant.

He has been released with a future court date.

Police are still working to identify the woman involved in the crime. She has tattoos on both hands. Anyone with information on her identity is asked to call Burnaby RCMP.
