Coquitlam RCMP's Prolific Target Team members arrested two Surrey men earlier this month on multiple theft and weapons charges.

The arrests were the result of the detachment's crime-reduction strategy, which has officers proactively pursuing the top 20% of the most active criminals who Mounties say are responsible for 80% of the crime.

On Feb. 13, investigators arrested 25-year-old Corey Todd Siebolts on two outstanding arrest warrants; he also had several outstanding out-of-province arrest warrants.

In addition to the warrants, Siebolts is facing a number of charges, including: eight counts of possession of stolen or forged identification or credit cards; four counts of breach of recognizance; two counts of identity theft; and one count of possession of stolen property.

On Feb. 6, investigators arrested David Edward Traill, 51, who is facing charges of theft of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, carrying a concealed weapon, breach of an undertaking and driving while suspended.

Both men are in custody until their next court appearances later this month.
