Two people facing charges following an Agassiz break in.

A Chilliwack man and Cultus Lake woman each face criminal charges following the police investigation into a break and enter in Agassiz.

Charles Keith Heward, 29, of Chilliwack, remains in custody. Heward is scheduled to appear in Chilliwack provincial court at the end of April.

Tiffany Leanne Orgill, 29, of Cultus Lake is scheduled to appear in Chilliwack provincial court in late April to face a charge of Break and Enter to commit an indictable offence there in theft.

The charges stem from a call received by Agassiz RCMP on the morning of Feb. 12,  to report a break and enter, which had occurred overnight to a home in the 10000 block of Thompson Road.  As the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment Crime Reduction Unit supported by Agassiz RCMP General Duty pursued their investigation, evidence gathered from security surveillance video linked the two suspects to the alleged break and enter.

“Criminals travel between the communities of the detachment area to commit their crimes. Officers throughout the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment remain vigilant to protect the public and keep our communities’ safe,” said Cpl. Mike Rail.

Police remind everyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious in nature to contact their local police or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
