Abbotsford brothers face an estimated 20 property-crime charges

Two brothers from Abbotsford have been arrested by Surrey RCMP and face an estimated 20 property-crime offences in the Lower Mainland.

Two brothers from Abbotsford have been arrested by Surrey RCMP and face an estimated 20 property-crime offences in the Lower Mainland.

Darwin Dorozan, 36, and Dane Dorozan, 35, were arrested Aug. 15 following a residential break-in in South Surrey. Investigators are now looking into further charges involving incidents in Surrey, Langley, White Rock and New Westminster.

Darwin has a long list of charges and convictions through the Lower Mainland, dating back to 1995, according to the provincial court database. His convictions include possession of stolen property, theft, possession for the purpose of trafficking, and break and enter.

Dane has previously been convicted of possession for the purpose of trafficking, and break and enter. He was most recently charged with drug possession charges last December in Abbotsford, with his trial due to begin in October.

Both are due to appear in court Sept. 7 for a bail hearing related to the break and enter in Surrey.

A third brother, Dennis, 38, also has a criminal history, but was not named by Surrey RCMP in the latest series of offences. He was previously convicted of possession of stolen property, and break and enter.

“The excellent work by investigators in apprehending these criminals sends a strong message that this type of criminal element is not welcome in our community,” said Cpl. Drew Grainger of the latest arrests.

“Property crime such as this causes a great deal of stress and inconvenience on behalf of homeowners. This arrest will hopefully bring some relief to those in our community who have been victimized.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP’s Property Crime Target Team at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
