Surrey RCMP advises that a male suspect has been arrested and charged after he allegedly robbed businesses while wearing rollerblades (see previous release).

Between August 20th and September 4th, 2016, three robberies occurred where the suspect made his get-a-way using rollerblades. Surrey RCMP Robbery Unit led the investigation and was able to identify a possible suspect. Follow up investigation eventually resulted in an arrest and charges being laid.

Charged with three counts of Robbery is David YASINSKY, 30 years old of Surrey, who has now been remanded in custody pending his next court date.

Sharp eyed witnesses provided details that helped officers quickly locate a suspect, says Corporal Scotty Schumann. Thanks to those witnesses, the investigation advanced rapidly and serves as good example of cooperation between police and the community.
