Business Licence Rescinded After Police Search Uncovers Firearm and Stolen Property on Premises

February 28, 2019

Surrey, BC – The City of Surrey has rescinded the business licence of Total Rapid Oil located at 7227 128th St. The action was taken after a recent investigation by Surrey RCMP that resulted in the seizure of a sawed-off rifle, credit cards, passports and personal authentication information. Two men have been arrested and are now facing several criminal charges.

“The decision to rescind the business licence is not only the right action to take but makes it clear that the City of Surrey will immediately take action when criminal activity is alleged to have taken place at a business,” said Mayor Doug McCallum. “The police are doing their job with their investigations and arrests, and the City will do what is within our purview to shut down businesses associated with criminal activity.”
