Career thief sentenced to eight years in prison
SURREY, B.C – A career thief was sentenced in the Surrey Provincial Court on Tuesday to eight years in prison for his involvement in a four months’ spree of household break and enters across the Metro Vancouver region in 2011.
Darwin Dorozan of Abbotsford was arrested with his brother and accomplice, Dane Dorozan, by the Surrey Mounties on August 15th, 2011.
Dane Dorozan is to be sentenced on September 21, 2012.
“The excellent work by investigators in apprehending these individuals sends a strong message that this type of criminal element is not welcome in our community,” said Sgt. Drew Grainger. “Property crime such as this causes a great deal of stress and inconvenience on behalf of homeowners. This sentencing will hopefully bring some relief to those in our community who have been victimised.”
The Surrey RCMP’s Property Crime Target Team arrested the pair following a residential break and enter in South Surrey. A follow-up investigation resulted in multiple charges brought against the two brothers, believed to be responsible for residential break and enters in Surrey, Langley, White Rock, and New Westminster.
The Dorozan brothers used sophisticated security measures to blur their tracks and avoid detection. Police discovered the level of meticulous planning only after the pair were in custody under interrogation.
The brothers targeted upscale homes stealing jewelry, money and electronics. The break-ins usually occurred on weekdays early in the afternoon when their owners were away at work.
