A suspect arrested last month in connection with the theft of a war vet's memorabilia is now facing additional charges.

Jaylene Hawkins, a 23-year-old Surrey resident, is now facing a total of 10 charges, including break and enter, identity theft, possession and/or trafficking in credit card data, uttering a forged document and possession of stolen property.

She had earlier been charged with theft of mail, mischief, unauthorized use of credit card data, possession of stolen property and breach of a condition.

The charges came after police found a stolen van that led them to a suspect in the May 30 break-in of a Second World War veteran's home. When Coquitlam RCMP's prolific target team executed a search warrant on a Surrey home on June 14, they found Jack Miles' cuff links, watches and document — but not his war medals.

Cpl. Jamie Chung said Surrey RCMP are still working to recover those missing items.

Anyone with information is asked to contact them at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
