File # 2017-135528

*UPDATE* - Suspect has been identified. See news release (2018-03-16).

Surrey RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying two alleged arson suspects from a commercial building fire that occurred this past September in the Surrey City Centre area.

On September 23rd the Hockey Shop Source for Sports located at 10280 City Parkway was destroyed by fire. Thankfully no injuries were reported.

Surrey RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit is leading this investigation. Officers have obtained surveillance video of two suspects alleged to be involved in this arson. From the photos, the suspects appear to be a male dressed in all red and carrying a back pack and a female wearing dark clothing.

This fire destroyed a prominent business in the Surrey City Centre area, says Corporal Scotty Schumann. Although there were no injuries to report, this crime has greatly affected the hockey community here in Surrey and across the Lower Mainland. If you recognize either of these two suspects, investigators want to hear from you right away.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 and quote file #2017-135528.
