Eight years sentence for break and enter

A career criminal has been sentenced to eight years in prison for his involvement in a series of break and enters, some of which occurred in New Westminster.

Surrey RCMP say Darwin Dorozan got the long term in Surrey provincial court Tuesday for a series of break-ins across the Lower Mainland during a four-month period in 2011. His brother, Dane Dorozan, will be sentenced for his role in the spree on Sept. 21.

The Abbotsford pair were arrested by Surrey RCMP on Aug. 15, 2011 after a break-in at a residence in South Surrey. The investigation led to multiple charges being laid for break and enters in Surrey, Langley, White Rock and New West.

"The brothers were very sophisticated and used a number of security measures to avoid detection and insulate themselves from their crimes," said a Surrey RCMP press release. "The level of planning undertaken, while believed in depth, was only truly realized once the two were in custody. The pair's modus operandi included targeting upscale homes stealing jewelry, money and electronics. The break-ins occurred usually during the weekdays once people left for work."
