Men charged after break-ins targeting cash and jewelery in Abbotsford homes

ABBOTSFORD, B.C. — Charges have been laid against two men accused in 38 break and enters in Abbotsford, B.C.

Police have pegged the value of the stolen goods at about $750,000 since the thefts began in November 2014.

Forty-five-year-old Shane Takakenew of Surrey and 20-year-old Dustin Littlewolfe of Vancouver were arrested on Sept. 29.

Takenenew has been charged with four counts of break and enter and Littlewolfe of Vancouver is charged with one count after the alleged thefts from homes.

Police are crediting quality video for helping them nab the suspects, who are accused of targeting the residences for cash and jewelry.

The Abbotsford Police Department says other charges may be possible involving incidents in the Fraser Valley city or in other Vancouver-area jurisdictions.
