New Westminster man charged in Surrey home invasion/death

Charges of second degree murder have been laid against a New Westminster teenager in connection with a home invasion in Surrey that ended in the death of the house's resident.
Kacey Rogers, 31, was fatally shot in his home on Grosvenor Road near 140th Street in North Surrey late Sunday (Feb. 26) evening.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation team, working with Delta police, New Westminster police and other Lower Mainland units, arrested two men Tuesday.
According to IHIT, Joshua Martinez, 19, of New Westminster and Russell Bidesi, 21, of Surrey are both charged with second degree murder while using a firearm, robbery and being in possession of a prohibited weapon. They were due to appear in court Friday.
"This was a planned home invasion turned deadly," said Corp. Adam MacIntosh in an IHIT news release. "Although charges have been laid, this investigation remains in its early stages, will remain active and continue to progress."
MacIntosh said investigators are looking into possible gang association. Anyone with information on the homicide can call the IHIT tipline (1-877-551-4448) or email ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. Anyone wanting to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or visit solvecrime.ca.
