SURREY (NEWS 1130) – A Surrey man has pleaded guilty to 13 charges linked to multiple break and enters around the Lower Mainland between 2019 and 2020.

Officers noted “unique characteristics of how the offence was committed,” before connecting the break-in to others and identifying a suspect.

Anthony Vossler was charged May 5, 2020 for four break and enters in Surrey and Langley that happened in November and December of 2019. He was arrested and later released pending court proceedings.

Over the course of the investigation, Vosser was implicated in more break-ins.
